Battle Over A Tree

On Wood street.

The removal plan was appealed by Gibson Avenue residents Saschja and Peter Marseguerra, who say the tree is “a unique and beautiful wonder of nature that we should respect, not kill.”

An arborist hired by a neighboring property owner concluded that removing the tree seemed “the most logical choice,” but said it could be preserved with pruning, support and annual monitoring.

A resident whose home is under the tree, in an email, called upon the city to remove the tree for safety reasons. A couple who live a few homes away wrote that the tree, if deemed truly dangerous, should be removed, but it would be best to save it if possible.

I know, move the tree to the yard where it can be respected.
