Queens trees are most valuable

Maybe if a developer was fined $52,830 every time he damaged a tree, we'd keep more trees around.

That number seems silly. Sorry.

The City just finished "trimming"
all the curb trees on my block
(and in the area).

After they hacked off a nearly a quarter of each tree from the bottom,the remaining sprigs
left on top resemble
Charlie Brown's forlorn little X-mas tree!

Hey, but "Asplundt Tree Experts" (experts???) has had the lucrative city contracts for years ?

I think that Paul Bunyon
is their boss!

Why does that number seem silly? They broke down where the value is coming from.

They eliminated over a dozen mature trees to build the Saint John's Henley Road dorms in Jamaica Estates.

I would have fashioned them into some crosses and crucified St. John's president and fellow butt kissers!
