ddot cut down a few dead trees on the block yesterday, leaving stumps with "ES" sprayed on them in fluorescent orange paint. does that mean "eliminate stump" or "eradicate stump"? i hope they do grind out the stumps so new trees can be planted there. i'll put a picture of this up later (unless they get rid of the stumps today) since my camera is magically working again!
UPDATE: well, there's a picture. the sun was setting, so i had to cast a shadow on the tree to keep the paint from being lost in the light, and it's a bad angle so you can hardly read it. someone left a comment about stumps being ground down on w street the day after being cut down, so we'll see if the city comes back around to grind this stump really soon.
