Now You See It, Now You Don't....Unexpected Death of a City Tree - Part 1


In compliance with the City of Westerville's Sidewalk Program, our sidewalk needed repair due to the roots of an approximately 36 year old locust tree. We knew that our sidewalk was to be repaired but just found out yesterday that the tree was marked for removal. I immediately called the city and found out that a horticulturalist would be out to see if the tree could be saved. It was decided that due to the depth and size of the root that had to be cut, it could not be saved. I took pictures before, during, and after. We are so very said to see this tree go. I will post more pictures tomorrow. Too sad.....
