RE: (Urban.Parks) The Final Word on those Brooklyn Trees

As someone who went down to City Council chambers years ago and
testified about the benefits of trees and the damages caused to our
street trees (the law did change and they raised the damages BIG TIME) I
hope they go after the contrator to the fullest extent of the law.
Construction/demo on your block?  Watch out for container/dumpster
removal and placement when contruction is going on.  They lift the
20-foot plus dumpsters right up in the air (hitting branches off).

Greetings Adam-
I was forwarded an email with your name and am replying. 
I am a consulting arborist and have worked on NYC infrastructure
projects involving NYC street trees for the past 10 years.  So there are
no misunderstandings, it is in all cases a contractors neglect and his
intent on maximizing time and profits that result in damage to our
trees.  York Restoration with their staff of professionals neglected to
secure the services of a professional consulting arborist with
experience in Construction & Trees prior to and during the excavation
work.  Had the contractor paid a certified arborist to carefully monitor
the guide the excavation work to minimize root damage, we wouldn't have
this issue, the trees would have been saved and the mud slinging at the
Department of Parks would not be occurring. 
The Department of Parks Brooklyn Forestry team are as serious about our
street  trees and critical of arrogant contractors as I am.  Forestry is
not to blame.
