Earlier this week I posted about some trees in the neighborhood that had been damaged because of the weather. See: Trees Down
Today as I drove by the park on my way home I noticed that some trees in the nearby park had been removed.
The tree in the first picture has been removed and the stump has been marked with a cone. The next step will be grinding the stumps and perhaps planting a new tree.
Here is a large tree that had come down in the park.
Today they removed most of the tree and all that is left is the stump. There is now a big gap in the tree line in the park.
They also removed two trees from another line of trees. These had been dead for some time, so it was good to see them taken away. There is also another tree in a different part of the park that was removed.
I walk around this park almost every day, so it will be interesting to see how the view has changed. Especially with the removal of the large tree that had blown over. This will also change the wind patterns a little bit as there is now less protection from the sometimes cold winds from the west.
I am tired after a long week in the classroom and some horrible commutes. Because of the storms there are several alternative routes through the Altamont Hills that are closed due to mud slides and washouts on the roads. This has caused more traffic on my route to work.
