I want to know why the tree's on center st. Was cut down when there was nothing wrong with them? The parks crew leader took it upon herself to cut them down without no approval. All because she didn't like them!! She don't event live in deer park. I lived in all my life and worked for the city for 13yrs. I think it's crap that she can do a job like that and get no approval on it. We don't need someone like that running this city like that! I want to know what is done about this situation.

They are going to plant trees and shrubs that won't fall on top of people's cars without warning. Clearly you haven't read any of the articles related to this. The new esplanades are going to look more modern rather than just unkept trees than falling branches all the time in the road.

That would be trees instead of tree's. Also, where are you getting your information from? Sounds like you are making an assumption about what happened. Please educate yourself not only on grammar and spelling but on what you are talking about.

Looks like most of the trees are about to die. Plus if they make it, the type of trees that planted shed a lot of leaves in the fall. Job security !

Those trees were not going to fall on anyones cars. Thats a big joke. People all over DP have those trees and while they may not have an 80 yr life span they were not "old" trees.
I certainly hope Deer Parks so called "tree expert" doesnt get a fat head from knowing they are being allowed to use the hard working tax payers dollars to feed their ego. DP has never been willing to really keep the esplanades neat and well cared for before and I don't expect this experiment to change that.
If you want to spend money, spend it in our schools ( and I dont mean by building fancy new campuses) as they are no longer the sought after schools they once were. Now just mediocre at best even with one of the highest tax rates around.

The esplanades look a lot better than they have in quite a while. I doubt the trees will die they are keeping them water like they should be in addition to the sprinklers at night. As far as spending money on schools instead of trees, that doesn't really work that way since it is two separate entities...
