We had to save our Sycamore tree. Technically, it's the City's Sycamore tree in the parkway. But, you know what I mean.
Our tree started cracking on Sunday. Someone reported the trees to the City and they were quickly inspected by the City and marked to be torn down. TOMORROW. This all happened over Monday or Tuesday while we were shut-in by the cold for two days with our three young kids. No one was told the trees would come down until an orange sign was posted today.
In a weird and quick serious of events, a few neighbors and I talked breifly and called the Bureau of Forestry, the local Streets and Sans supervisors and the 47th Ward Alderman's office. The Forestry department guy immediately pulled up the reported trees. He said he also knew the trees split and close up from time to time and was disappointment the trees were ordered to be removed by their inspector. The removal order was cancelled.
