Tree down on Avenue B at 7th Street

EVG regular Lola Sāenz shares these photos from outside Tompkins Square Park on Avenue B at Seventh Street... the Chinese elm tree is down...

Two witnesses said that a "big truck" struck the tree, causing the fall. It's not clear what, if anything, the driver did after the collision.

Here's a look at the tree from last September via Google Street View...

This is the second tree lost in the Park since Saturday.

Updated 5 p.m.

Several witnesses said that this Bartlett Dairy truck was the culprit... the driver was spotted assessing the damage. It's not known if he did anything else about the damaged tree.

Thanks to Daniel Root for the photo.
