Two trees at 238 Columbia Street, a vacant lot owned by Hudson Community Development & Planning Agency, were cut down today.
According to a press release from HCDPA received this morning, the trees were a sumac and a Norway maple--neither species much esteemed. HCDPA made known its intention to plant four new trees in an undisclosed local park to compensate for the loss of these two trees.
At the site today, Gossips learned that the large elm tree at the front of the lot (which appears in the foreground of the picture above) is dead and will be removed in the spring.
