didn't manage to snap a photo yesterday, but was sad to see they removed all the trees along the east edge of the site, presumably because roots interfered with shoring. those were some well developed, healthy trees..
That's REALLY too bad - they were maturing very nicely. I had actually emailed the City tree folk about their lack of protection last week - I guess they did not need any if they were slated for removal.
Tree Preservation Plan is below:
Trees with Green Numbers stay.
Trees with Red Numbers to be removed.
38 Trees to be removed: 21 to be retained.
Excerpt from the applicable report:
I had a look at the inventory.
All but 4 trees had more or less perfect scores for health.
Not one tree had a 'poor' rating in any category.
