Once More with Feeling--Timber!

Neighborhood protest may have stayed the ax on Monday, but it seems to have had no effect on Eric Galloway's determination to clear-cut the side yard of 25 Union Street. The professionals arrived today, with the heavy equipment.

These pictures, taken by a Gossips reader, capture the "topping" of the smaller of the two giant spruce trees. The larger spruce, visible from the river, is also coming down, as are, according to the tree crew, all the rest of the trees in the yard--including a perfectly healthy American elm.
