Developer slows Londonderry protest

Landowner puts up signs in advance of tree-hugging rally


Tetreau said she believes the signs may have the opposite effect than what was intended.

“I think we might get three times as many people as we would have gotten,” she said. “It’s turned into a David vs. Goliath thing.”

The organization had hopes 100 people would show to support their cause. Ellen Marshall, a former Derry resident, is traveling from New Jersey to try to help save the trees.

“It’s a sad and really a regrettable situation,” Marshall said. “It just seems hostile to me.”

But she said the no trespassing signs won’t change her efforts.

“I just want to thank and honor them,” she said. “This is where I grew up and it was part of my childhood.”

The rally is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday at the corner of Gilcreast and Pillsbury Roads.
