Stevens trees botched and hacked

Dozens of trees perish in Stevens tree line hack job

Totally forgot about these pics I took a month ago up at Stevens Institute of Technology. Apparently a huge number of Stevens trees were cut down in the area near the cannon lookout point. Maybe around 50?

I asked one of the Stevens cops (who was directing some teenage girls out of the brush below), what the deal was. He suggested that the trees were cut down because of “boulders falling onto the roadway below.” When I asked was murdering all these trees necessary, he had no clue.

Don’t you think it would have been easier to just either remove the boulders manually, or just put some kind of mesh netting on the surround grounds?

Something seems weird here. Maybe someone wanted a better view of the fireworks. Who knows.

Those trees used to always be trimmed like that if you look at any historical photos. Even as recent as 6 or 7 years ago you have a beautiful view of the Empire State Building from Castle Point. Then they stopped trimming them and all you could see what Lower Manhattan.

It’s sad they probably killed them by doing is this way, instead of regular maintenance like they’ve done for decades.

I’d have to assume that the view from someone on the boards office was obstructed.

I couldn’t understand this either.
