Letter: Destroy the trees, expect the snirt

Aneta, N.D. - When I was growing up in this great state, I remember the word "snirt" surfaced. Most of the younger generation hasn’t heard of this.

A lot of people now own their own track hoes, so it’s very easy to tear out a shelterbelt. There is a reason they are called shelterbelts. I haven’t seen snow this dirty in 40 years.

Maybe people soon will wonder why it looks like this and why they have poorer crops. I don’t know; you fill in the answers.

The government should mandate that for every tree destroyed, two more be planted.

I believe this would solve many problems such as the shelterbelts. It doesn’t take that long to farm around a couple of rows of trees.
