My personal favourite tree in the entire neighbourhood has been cut down.
This magnificent tree stood at the south east corner of Commercial & Adanac. Its majestic dome of a canopy was a wonder to behold. I used to see it just about every day as I waited for the #20 going south, and I would day dream about the photographs I could take of shapes and patterns.
But no more. That wonderful tree is now a pile of lumber surrounding a stump.
I guess the tree was on city land. I wonder if they have to go through the same rigorous processes that they quite rightly enforce on property owners seeking to remove a tree. Somehow I doubt it.
