Notice anything different or interesting about the following image?
I'll give you a hint: you saw a photo of this spot just a few days ago.
Okay, how about another hint?
Does that help?
Yes, the seemingly giraffe-pruned pine is no longer around! Here's a reminder of what it looked like a few days ago:
Now I'm thinking that this crazy pruning job was just the first stage of the tree's removal, with stage two happening a week later. Not a bad plan for DIY lumberjacks actually.
I sure hope they plant another tree here, as the corner looks strangely empty now. Add this to the fact that the neighbor a few houses away (who also happens to be on a corner) had two large pines taken down last year, and this section of street has lost a great deal of winter tree appeal and summer shade.
Another pine would be nice as I don't think anyone has been planting any, and the neighborhood loses a couple every year.
Just make sure it's planted straight this time.
(Remove a tree, plant a tree -- that should be the rule, right?)
