The East Fifth St. Tree Committee is certainly not pleased about this
There was some drama today on East Fifth Street between Second Avenue and Cooper Square.
The story goes something like this.
This morning, workers arrived to remove a dumpster that had been on the block for months. We're a little sketchy on details, but apparently a resident yelled at the driver to sweep up the remnants from where the dumpster lived. So the truck with the dumpster now on board double-parked to do the sweeping. The driver then had to back up the truck, accidentally taking down the branches in the process.
Meanwhile, at this time we can't independently verify if this sign is via the East Fifth St. Tree Committee.
Thank you to PandaCat for the photos.

I love my block.
I saw Jan, the German woman taking care of business when I went out earlier this morning. She's the tree lady. I love how she yells at truck drivers to be cognizant of low branches. PS: Eden Bee, I love my block as well. Have been loving it for 36 years.
I don't believe the driver swept up because someone yelled at him to do so. These are truck drivers we're talking abouty, and entitled EV babies.
