Tree Pruning Request


58 times






City tree between 10 and 12 Chester Ave needs pruning. Branches hang low enough so that trash trucks robot arms are ripping branches out of the tree when picking up trash cans.

Also, there are branches that are increasingly stressing 12 Chester Ave power and utility wires.

Lastly, the tree is spreading horizontally so that lower branches are starting to reach over the lower roofs of 10 and 12 Chester Ave.

The above is exacerbated when it rains and the leaves are wet, branches hang even lower.

Honestly, I think this tree was incorrect for the location and to me it looks like there are some large trunks that need to be removed so the lower part of the tree isn't so low.
