Around a dozen trees have been marked for obliteration along the Brook Path in Wellesley (was running at the time, forgive me if my count is off a bit). The trees identified are in poor health or otherwise endanger the public.
Though it was this tree below, which is situated among a bunch that are marked but wasn’t marked for take-down itself, that I avoided getting too close to.
Wellesley this month has been recognized with a Tree City USA Award for the 30th consecutive time. According to a press release: “The award was given in recognition of the Natural Resources Commission’s and Department of Public Works’ proactive and ambitious public tree management program that preserves and protects over 10,000 Town-owned trees for the enjoyment of the public and the enhancement of Wellesley’s environment.”
