Tough Summer for Trees – Another One Down

Summer storms, overzealous businesses and now trucks. It’s been a tough summer for the city’s trees.

A reader writes:

“Passed this on my way to work this morning, and thought I’d send it in – a delivery truck hit a tree on the sidewalk of Conn Ave, just north of R street (around 8:30- 9 AM or so) – tree was uprooted and basically blocking the sidewalk – nothing too dramatic, but made for a more interesting commute as we had to inch around the foliage to get past.”
