Atlanta’s Annual Tree Purge

This past weekend, I spotted the first evidence of a sad annual rite of passage for our treasured public greenspaces:

The orange spray paint means only one thing: this tree has been marked for removal.  Sadly, many of these monstrous beauties are at the end of the line.  Old age and a few years of drought have taken their toll, putting the City into a position where they must either remove the dying trees or simply wait for them to fall.  As someone who enjoys city parks on a daily basis, I’m thankful that tree removal is one budget item that hasn’t been eliminated.

It’s hard to replace trees that have been around for hundreds of years. If you love parks as much I do and want to make a difference, donate to Trees Atlanta today.  It’ll make a huge impact for years to come…
