Madison To Benefit From Generous Gift From Lester Pines

September 21, 2016

The Madison law firm headed by attorney Lester Pines has frequently been in the news for providing legal services to those people making headlines about the issues we care about in Madison.  This week it was announced that his love for the city and the matter of parkland trees has made him a newsmaker for something other than legal cases.  As someone who does love a good story to post about on this blog the news is most welcome.  As a lover of trees I am sincerely thrilled.

Pines has donated $10,000 for new trees in Madison parks.  That is a sizable gift and as all are too well aware most timely.  The donation to Madison Parks Foundation Tree Fund will help the city replace 25,000 ash trees being removed because of the infestation by the tree-killing emerald ash borer.

If you are like me than walking in our city parks and enjoying the trees is perhaps more than a weekly encounter.  Too many of the trees which provide shade and cover and a most beneficial aesthetic quality to our urban life are suffering or been removed.  Due to Pines and other like him who make a contribution to the Madison Parks Foundation Tree Fund our city will see a new series of trees which future generations will be able to enjoy.

While this news is most welcome it should also be noted that Pines will be defending Madison Police Chief Mike Koval in a complaint set to be heard in November.  Koval is a man I much respect and admire and so it goes without saying I am most pleased Pines, who has shown his legal prowess before, will be able to allow for a proper outcome to this matter.
Thanks, Lester!  On both counts.

    A man named “Pines” donating tress is a beautiful thing indeed.
