Some trees on the Longshore Club Park golf course sported yellow ribbons today indicating they may be cut down as part of a planned $2.3 million upgrade of the course. Some residents have said the number of doomed trees is excessive. Parks and Recreation Department Director Stuart McCarthy has said only trees absolutely necessary to accomplish the upgrade will be removed. The Representative Town Meeting will take up the appropriation request at its April 5 meeting. Tom Feeley for WestportNow.com
