This tree had it coming

Dangerous tree removed from Stevens Park in Hoboken

Seems like most trees the city has removed in town are usually perfectly okay. I still don’t understand that worthless classification calling Hoboken a Tree City. How can a densely populated urban area ever be called that?

Whatever. One out of a hundred times, they do actually take down a dangerous tree. This one on the corner of 4th & Hudson recently dropped a very heavy branch and was just sick. Good job taking care of it before someone was crushed to death.

But they missed some others – as later that day winds toppled another sick tree into a major powerline elsewhere in town, and thousands lost power temporarily. Whoops!
