City installed a tree in front of my house a few years ago. City replaced sidewalk pulled up by said sidewalk a couple years ago. Today this tree has not only pulled up and cracked (seriously) the new sidewalk but its branches are bouncing off all lines to the house I.E. electric, phone and cable. Should this tree cause all these problems or can the city do something about it ??

Notices were posted on 3 trees at the intersection of Bradley and Lincoln back in October of last year notifying that the trees had been marked for destruction. As someone that lives nearby I objected to the proposed orders since 2 of the trees are very nice lindens (Tilia americana) that are in very good shape. This past week I got a response from the Deputy Director for the Parks Service and was informed that a public hearing will happen this coming Wednesday at City Hall, 6:30 pm in Meeting Room 1 on the 2nd level. Christy Haas will be the individual overseeing the occasion.
I'm filing this so that other people living in East Rock area or any part of Connecticut can show up to this event and learn how precisely this kind of protocol works for tree removal. To my understanding this isn't related to the UI Deforestation Order but I still see it as unnecessary tree removal since the lindens are bothering no one and damaging nothing. The primary reason for the desire to remove these trees has something to do with nearby construction.
Any public officials willing to show up to the meeting and issue statements keeping the trees where they are would be greatly appreciated.

The Pleasant St side of this property would be a great place for a bike rack. People are locking their bikes to sign posts, small trees, and gas meter pipes. I think this would be great to add here.

I would just jump up and pull it down, but I know better- it's about 3 inches in diameter at stub end and about 7-8ft long caught in amongst other dead branches.

On Bradley Street outside the New Haven Academy, a tree has has been very badly topped. This raises several issues. Was this done by a licensed arborist? Did someone pay for this to be done? Were the correct permissions obtained? Where the local resident and/or neighborhood association (Lincoln-Bradley Neighborhood association) notified beforehand? Does notification need to be given by law to the local residents?

dead or dying tree in front of 73 pearl st is dropping branches on cars and sidewalk. dangerous for pedestrians and can cause damage to parked cars. should be trimmed or removed before someone gets hurt.

let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.
although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.
when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.
this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.
i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.
