Yesterday two arborists came to assess the trees in Stuyvesant Cove Park, and take down the ones that won’t survive their Sandy damage. In all, seven trees were cut back or removed entirely, then chopped up into semi-mulch, which will hopefully be composted- unfortunately the wood chips were too big and sharp to be used as mulch in the Park. Sadly, all our Eastern Red Cedars had to be removed, as well as some of our hackberry trees.
Expect to see these guys back at it again next week- they had to cut their work short because of yesterday’s high winds. While we’re sorry to lose some of our mature trees, we’re excited to see what spring will bring for the Park!
