 Jon Crow can be a pain-in-the butt, but he's dead on honest. I'd tend to believe this report.

News from the tb-cybergardens mailing  list

Requiring an arborist and getting an arborist that will do their job well can be 
a big difference here. When a water tunnel project barreled up Union Street in 
Brooklyn, there was an arborist on site throughout the project.  Fellow 
treehuggers and I were constantly tracking her down to report arbor-abuses on 
branches, trunks and roots we witnessed almost daily that somehow she wasn't 
around to supervise. Once, while she stood by watching, I caught one of the 
workers ripping a branch off a tree after his plow had broken it. Novice pruners 
know better than that.  p.s. She went on to work for Brooklyn Forestry.  Guess 
I'm just saying that the best protection for our trees is us. I wonder what kind 
of legislation is going to bring the care that we know is necessary.

>There really needs to be legislation that requires building and scaffolding 
contractors to have someone certified by the Parks department on site when they 
deal with trees.  Have you ever looked at a tree after being covered by 
scaffolding for several years.  The shape never comes back.  The building owner 
should be required to replace each tree damaged by scaffolding with the same 
caliber of street tree that was destroyed.  Someone should bring these issue to 
the Council's parks committee.
