Milford tree controversy ends in favor of allergic child
The fate of three Hickory trees in Milford has been decided in favor of an allergic 3-year-old boy.
Una Glennon says she recently learned her grandson Nolan had a severe nut allergy after he reacted violently to a cashew earlier this year. She petitioned the city to remove the trees, which hang over her backyard and drop nuts on her patio and in her pool and hot tub. Some neighbors contend she is using her grandchild as a ruse so she can get rid of the trees that overhang her property.
The Milford tree warden sided with Nolan late Wednesday, agreeing to remove the trees if Glennon foots the bill and donates money for their replacements.
