    This might be a slightly odd request, but would it be possible to leave this stump/tree remains as is, instead of taking it the rest of the way down?
    My reasoning is that vertical elements like this do act as a traffic calming measure, and speed is a real problem here. We have just lost four tall trees, and it takes awhile before new trees will grow as tall as this. So for the time being, could you just leave it standing?
    Maybe we could even put reflectors or a "caution - pedestrians" sign on it.

    Thank you for taking care of the trees that had been dropping limbs; we are sad to see them go, but they were a safety hazard.

    Tree was cut improperly after inspection from a city arborist a few years ago. Now it is overgrown with several branches coming out of the ground. Please prune the tree. This had been requested several times now.

    This tree is obstructing the sidewalk again, which is a hazard because Riverside Avenue has so much car traffic.

    28 Fells Avenue Medford, Massachusetts, 02155 - Medford
    This was first reported back in August and still says the issue is open but not a thing has been done. I took this picture last night when I was walking up Fells Ave to get to my house. You can barely fit by this overgrowth stemming out from a young tree that was planted about 2 years ago. If I lived in that house, I would have trimmed this myself, but I don't live there. Can some department in the city please take care of this and prune this tree or cut the random stems causing this overgrowth? Don't understand why this issue has not been taken care of before this.

    There are two dead trees along a path in the fells behind 16 Ronaele Rd. a large branch from one broke and hit the power lines on the way down. No damage was done, but these branches could possibly take out power lines or hit pedestrians on the trail below.

    Nothing was done on the report last year, so let's try again. The mirror to see down Grove St is useless coming off Bussell. The trees need pruning.
