Please do not cut down bendy tree just yet
That's the message on signs that appeared this morning around the doomed leaning elm (aka bendy tree) in Tompkins Square Park...
As previously reported, an arborist hired by the Parks Department found the favorite tree structurally unsound and recommended that it be cut down. However, there is a movement afoot to, at the very least, get a second opinion on the tree's health and involve the Community Board in the decision before the Park loses another tree.
