Oh, and by the way, I don't hear anybody crying about overhead trolley wires in Portland, Oregon !! And no trees are dying because of them.....real nonsense. If anything will kill trees, it would be pollution from Diesel buses, trucks and automobiles. I'd rather have a thin trolley wire than clouds of Diesel exhaust smoke...... And with the trees, the overhead wires are hardly noticeable. In Philadelphia, when I ask people if they mind the overhead wires on streets with trolleys, the usual answer is: "what wires?" People don't even pay any attention to them, unless it's at a complicated intersection, where routes converge. And even then, modern overhead, {simple} trolley wire, has been designed to be unobtrusive.
