Grand Forks Herald
Cartoon depicts Alan Webster chopping down a tree as hornets, "Public Opinion," swarm around him. Following a year long battle to save two trees, which stood on the south side of the Dacotah Hotel for more than sixty years, the trees were cut down by the Grand Forks Street Department on orders of City Manager Alan Webster and with the consent of Grand Forks Mayor Nelson A. Youngs. The city maintained that the trees were a "traffic hazard" and since located on public property constituted a nuisance.
