I was pleased to see the Galax Beautification Committee has re-organized. I have a suggestion for the group. Many years ago, dogwood trees were planted in the center of the four-lane from Fries Road to the city limits at the caution light. They did not survive. However, it would look very nice if the Bartlett Pear trees were planted like the ones that are growing from Country Club Lane to McDonald’s. Also, if you enter town from Route 89 side, it is unattractive. It would be nice if improvements could be made to the south side of town.
