Guilherme Almeida tweets us earlier this morning:

“4th 100 year old tree being removed on my formerly beautiful tree lined block. Why?!”

“this one is at lamont st between 11th and 13th. The other have been on 11th between lamont and park.”

“I was told the reason for removal by the crew was ‘tree’s dead’. I’m no arborist but it clearly looks alive to me!”
