  • 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.

  • Governors Ave Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford

    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.
