Good comments FangKC. All true. I specialize in this issue and I have been watching the Plaza trees closely. The key reason for so many dead trees on the Plaza this year is the salt. They are spreading too much salt. They are spreading it too sloppily and are throwing it onto the tree wells. They need to use a different, less harsh chemical. They also need to bring a water truck through in the early spring to flush the salt down before the tree starts pulling all the poisoned soil moisture in to prepare for bud swell and break.

They blame the trees, but they need to blame their snow contractor.

Is there anyone communicating this to management?

Serious question, don't know if they work with the city on landscaping, sidewalk trees etc.

Westport had this same problem about 5 years ago and poisoned over 50 street trees. They got serious about tree health after that and the WRBL started educating the property owners and managers about proper snow treatment. They understand the value those street trees provide and want to preserve that resource.

Was that when they built the human cages to protect the trees?

45th & Summit apartment building has begun framing. Elevator tower has been sitting there for a little while as they built out the underground parking area.

Nobody is building condos. But they will all become condos when the money flies like it did a decade ago. If it ever does.

There's not enough information to be certain either way on this one. It just says six units is being built.
