bye-bye dead tree

the tree blocking part of your view of downtown bloomingdale's public restroom has been cut down. it was dead for at least a year, and was looking pretty weak before that. hope the city puts something appropriate there soon, a tree that will grow up to be a decent shade tree, not something small and decorative.

Might be a good idea to call Casey Trees, the nonprofit group that plants trees all over the city - that way you can be ensured it will be replaced promtly and with a quality shade tree

anon: i'm a citizen forester with casey trees. unfortunately, casey doesn't do street trees anymore. the urban forestry administration (which is part of ddot) is in charge of street trees, and casey does projects in parks and private property now.
