The description contained in the montage put together by a reader says it all. What looks to be a recently planted street tree was removed for a driveway.
For the record, DOB didn't see anything wrong here, either.

Street tree destroyed, but Parks doesn't care

That's a pity! Wouldn't it be nice if that driveway were destroyed by some concerned tree-huggers?
They don't need google maps. It looks like a recently planted tree. Parks must have a record of the address where new trees are planted. Also Parks does a tree census which also records the location, size and health of all the city trees.
Before we start jumping to conclusions the 311 request says "duplicate request" in notes to customer. They may have just closed this request out because its a duplicate and are still looking into an original complaint.
I submitted this to queens crap. It was not a newly planted tree, but one that had been heavily pruned or just small. I only filed the second complaint after the first one was closed as no condition seen by the parks department.
Parks & Recreation are pretty bad, almost at the bottom with Department of Buildings. Both need major overhaul, because both seem to be pretty much useless on so many issues.
No jumping to conclusion, they are just really useless, though DOB is rock bottom.
