The billboard industry is profiting from cutting down and poisoning publicly-owned trees.
All across America, billboard companies are suing local and
state governments for the right to cut down or drastically trim trees that grow anywhere near their signs. Never mind that these trees were planted at public expense. Never mind that the billboard industry is the only commercial enterprise to so boldly lay claim to the public right of way for its own private benefit. And never mind that the courts have repeatedly ruled that they simply have no right to do so.
When the billboard companies cut down trees, they make our roads uglier, steal our property, hurt the local economy and create a distraction for drivers.
Please sign this petition today to stand up against tree-cutting by billboard companies!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
