Trees Cut Down on Broadway



So this morning I get to work to see one of the ficus trees in front of the Eastern Columbia building, is now in pieces on the ground. Within a few hours the tree was chewed up & gone. I don't know the reason, roots in the sewer? The trees were just trimmed a few months ago, at the buildings expense, and now the city cut the tree down. The stump is still there & if I know ficus trees that thing will be a crazy looking bush in a matter of months & I don't know if the city will remove the stump, but if they don't the roots will still be an issue. What gives LA? I thought we were suppose to be planting trees not cutting them down.

A UPS truck knocked it down a few days ago. The city came and cleaned it up. I hope it gets replaced by those no-good UPS people. Since this happened we have stopped using UPS at my company until this is resolved and I understand several other Easterners are doing the same.
