What's with all the Liquid Amber and magnloia trees?
Original post made by Harumph! on Jul 24, 2007
They are filthy trees, pouring down large hazardous cones and spikey balls on thoroughfares and sidewalks.
IN the last year alone, I have replaced my bike tires more than a dozen times. Even with special tube liners, the spiked liguid amber balls pierce bike tires.
I know a woman who tripped on a magnolia cone, and broke her elbow.
Can the city be subject to claims for oloses like this.
I absolutely LOVE trees, but how could anyone calling himself an urban arborist ever have come up with planting those two species in an urban space?
We all want to talk about our walkable environment, but try walking without tripping on the droppings trees, and sidewalks that are unended every two years by magnolia roots.
