South End Answers: Tree Removal on Columbus Ave

The trees were removed due to a public safety hazard, according to the city.

In this week’s “You Ask, Patch Answers” column, where we find the answers to your questions, a South End reader asked about a large tree that was being taken down on Columbus Ave on Friday.

“Any idea why they are taking down a huge tree over on Columbus Ave today? Seems unnecessary?” Reader Dave wrote in via Twitter. 

To find out the answer, I reached out to Boston’s Parks and Recreation Department, which is in charge of all tree removal in Boston. 

The large tree, an 80-year-old elm, was taken down on Friday at Carter Playground, 709 Columbus Ave., because it has Dutch Elm disease. 

“The Department hopes that by removing this tree we will prevent other elms in the park from being contaminated,” said Jacquelyn Goddard, a Parks Department spokesperson. “The Department will be conducting routine examinations during the year to inspect the rest of the tree stock to see if other elms remain healthy.” read more

Letter: Tree Removal on Tremont Street Comes as a Surprise

Dear Editor,

This morning I woke up to the pleasant noise of chain saws and wood chippers outside my windows.

I look out and the city has cut down 3-4 beautiful trees that lined our street. There was no notice of this happening, and they destroyed my privacy and curb appeal. 

I know that other residents of the area were upset as well. The trees were beautiful and healthy. They withstood the winds of Sandy without breaking a limb. 

The trees were located alongside the building 655 Tremont Street on W. Brookline where Gold Gallery is. 

My windows are directly above Gold Gallery looking out onto W. Brookline. I now have no privacy, and the street looks horrible. They also destroyed our brick sidewalk in the process. 

I thought I would bring this to your attention so we can get some neighborhood awareness about this, and prevent things like this happening in the future. 

Let me know if you have any questions, and go take a look; it is bad! read more
