I looked at the trees. About a third had serious rot, one a definite hazard, being only a shell. However, any tree expert who identified these as maples, when they were in fact yellow poplar Liriodendron tulipifera, as well as at least one oak, is no expert at all. These were massive trees, most of about 4 to 5 foot diameter, among the largest trees anywhere in NJ. After Hurricane Irene and the October snow and ice storm, any trees left standing in the state were more than likely strong enough to survive, if in need of safety pruning. Nothing less than wanton tree murder. I hope the huge, mostly sound logs will be sold for lumber, at least. Such a shame.
