Going, Going ...

608 South Pleasant (Rt 116)

This big old sugar maple at 608 South Pleasant street is coming down after perhaps 75 years of service to my neighborhood providing shade, drinking up water run off, absorbing carbon dioxide while infusing the area with good clean oxygen.

And in it's time,  quite the beauty.

Tree required a large crane

 Tree Warden Alan Snow reports the tree was dying in the wrong spot and could not be saved, but in its place the town will plant four more. 

Such is the cycle of life.  And death.

 All that remains
