Workers today cut down this sycamore tree on the north side of Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second.
It was not immediately clear what prompted this removal...
This lovely sycamore tree and I coexisted peacefully on this block for over 47 years. I don't remember it ever being small. I have no clue why the city choose to murder it today. They will probably say "it's too old," unsafe, etc., etc., etc. My feeling is that Amazon probably needs its own loading space, another restaurant shed needs to be built, a branch might injure a CAR! or it's just inconveniently in the way. I, being old like the sycamore, hope I live long enough to see its spindly replacement sapling, which the city will plant and then ignore.
Yesterday, city workers also removed a tree on 10th Street just west of First Avenue...

Here's a look at the damaged (elm?) tree in Tompkins Square Park... a large section of the tree splintered overnight Sunday here on the south end of the Park along Seventh Street... however, crews were able to spare the rest ...

limbs have fallen in the Park in recent weeks — some due to storms... and some not.

As reported yesterday, yesterday's high winds and heavy rain brought down one of the majestic American elm trees in Tompkins Square Park.
By early last evening, a crew was in the Park removing the tree from near the entrance on Avenue A at St. Mark's Place.
Steven took these photos today. The winds uprooted the tree, which apparently had a weak root system (or so an onlooker surmised) ... tree map was updated.

to fall during a storm this year ... workers did plant up to 20 new ones in the Park late last year.
