EVG reader Bobby G. notes that this is what's left of the majestic American elm that stood on East Third Street between Avenue C and Avenue D... Per Bobby: "It was cut down today. Why? I do not know."
One EVG reader said that the tree had a bit of a lean, and that the city was worried that it might fall during a storm.
Regardless, as Bobby G. said, "it is a great loss to the block."
Oh, crap. That trunk looks completely solid, not a trace of rot. This is criminal.
American elms are very delicate and can be rotting even though not visible.
Maybe it had Dutch Elm disease?
It's a fucking tree. Get some perspective, people.
