Logan Circle Trees

This morning when I was walking by Logan Circle I saw something on one of the trees that had me stop dead in my tracks. There was a man with a chainsaw, and half of those beautifully strange trees had already been cut down!! Such a sad sight. Oh, I should mention, the man with the chainsaw was part of the city, not some random tree cutter. They also had construction equipment. Now it’ll look so bare.

    The trees are being replaced. Most of them are too big for the space or are diseased so the city is ripping them out and replanting them with the same species.

    So that is what the city considers equitable use of our tax dollars? Meanwhile we are laying people off, don’t have a rail system that is anywhere near that of other cities and oh yeah launching a wireless network for the underserved areas of the city? I guess no one told them that the people this network is supposed to serve don’t have computers let alone the $ 50-100 network card needed to get on a wireless network!!

    Gotta love this town!

    Well, leaving diseased trees means we’ll only spread the disease around the city. They need to be taken care of somehow.

    They looked fine to me, but obviously I am no tree expert. And actually walking by today I could see a lot more of all the buildings around the parkway, so I am sure it’ll look awesome when they are done, and I’ll feel foolish for being sad about the trees.

    I saw the tree devestation, too- and it made me sad. I love jogging down that way, and the big trees around the circle always made it feel less “big city” to me. I can understand taking care of the trees, and restricting the spread of disease. Maybe we should have considered taking care of the homeless people beneath them, first, though.
