Removed Tremont St. Trees Presented Public Safety Hazard, According to City

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

It wasn’t long before others began to share their own concerns. Reader Omar wrote that he was very disappointed – and borderline angry –  to see the trees removed from the block.

“Trees are a key component of West Brookline Street’s charm and beauty,” he wrote. “The fact that the removal came without warning adds insult to injury. The neighborhood should be more aware of this kind of activity and prevent it in the future.” read more
