With thousands of trees lining the streets throughout the city, it is important that regular, consistent maintenance be sustained whenever possible. While the city is strapped financially due to the economic situation, there should not be a reduction of funds for the city Parks Department to be able to prune and maintain trees.
While it is physically impossible to prune every single tree that lines city streets and parks, there are areas where trees have experienced severe branch loss or are dead, such as Francis Lewis Boulevard between the north Horace Harding Expressway service road to Northern Boulevard in Bayside.
Many of the large oak trees along this roadway are in desperate need of pruning or total removal. Hopefully, this task can be accomplished between now and the end of September.
