An EV Grieve reader out walking his dog this morning was shocked to find that the majestic willow on Eighth Street near Avenue C....
... had been hacked down... seemingly overnight...
Per the reader: "maybe it was diseased, but it looked perfectly healthy to me."
Melanie just posted a photo of this willow at East Village Corner. In the comments I said that I loved this tree.
A reader sends along another photo, noting that "it looks worse in the daylight."
