The Sad Death of a Fine Tree
I was startled to see this tree being chopped down outside my balcony. Apparently, it is 30 years old and has met its end because of water works. The plane trees along the pavement outside O’Donnell Court are quite densely planted and already growing into each other’s crowns, so will no doubt need to be thinned at some point. However, it is still sad to say farewell to this one, and see the slightly lop-sided crown of its neighbour turning its leaves to the sun in the new gap beside it.
