Much Needed Tree Removal and Pruning

This past Saturday, based on recommendations by the consulting arborists of the Friends of the Public Garden, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department removed 4 worrisome trees.  Another was pruned due to a major crack in a main limb. The 4 trees were first targeted for removal late last fall due to declining health. In all, three species of Maple, a Norway Maple (Acer platanoides) a Sycamore Maple (Acer pseudoplatanus) and a Silver Maple (Acer saccharinum) and one Scots Elm (Ulmus glabra) were removed. A fifth tree was slated for removal but extensive pruning was done to further preserve the tree, a Callery Pear (Pryus calleryana).  Special thanks go out to the efforts of Greg Mosman, Tree Warden for the City of Boston, for the help in coordinating these removals.

  1. Happy to hear that the Callery Pear made it out alive, towns and utilities are usually relentless about this stuff and do whatevers quickest, kill it. Bravo, to those that made efforts for the survival of the Callery.
