Damaged tree in Tompkins Square Park appears OK for now...

So yesterday, workers arrived in Tompkins Square Park to take care of the broken limb from that majestic elm in the meadow... the branch came down late Saturday night...

After examining the damage...

[Dave on 7th]

...workers cleaned up the downed limb...

...and a little bit later in the day, via peter radley...it appears the tree is OK for now... workers applied some tree paint (wound dressing) ...


Hopefully all is well... we're waiting to hear back from a Parks official with more...

I hope this isn't due to Dutch Elm Disease. It kills me to see these grand trees come down.
