Summer begins with random bags of soil and a note from the East Fifth St. Tree Committee

The official start to the summer season is off to a fine start … especially with a note from the local folk heroes of the the East Fifth St. Tree Committee.

PandaCat passes along these photos from last night on East Fifth Street between Second Avenue and Cooper Square … showing a few bags of soil … now with a note!

"Please don't put this soil into the tree pit because then the soil level will be too high. If the are bags are a gift for the tree committee let us know."


Also, just a reminder: Please do not attach bikes or carts to the tree guards. Thank you!

Yeah, absolutely the biggest problem (after lazy selfish dog owners) is too much soil in the pits. Blows my mind when people actually build up a wall around the pit, and then fill it with soil.
And then everybody cries because eventually the tree has to come down because the roots are all above ground level, or the tree is diseased from having soil level packed up around it's body for years and years.
