I was happy to see City workers trimming the tree shoots sprouting from all the dead crepe myrtles on Hull Street this evening.
As we reported in our prior article City Workers Hack & Kill Trees On Hull Street, city workers maimed and killed all the mature crepe myrtles on Hull Street in September of 2016 before Mr. Stoney and his new administration took office. It is good to see the new administration stepping up to begin addressing this situation. They started today by cutting back and bagging up the overgrown shoots from the base of all the dead trees.
The obvious next question is: Will the City remove all the dead trees and replace them with new ones? Here’s to hoping we we get some new trees this Fall!
