Inspect the trees

Dear Editor,

The recent incident in Bryant Park in which a tree fell and injured five people is yet another wakeup call for citywide inspections of all park and curbside trees.

There may be many trees that are weakened due to age, insect infestation and this protracted dry spell that our area has been experiencing the last several weeks.

The Parks Department needs to make this a top priority, since we are now coming into the peak of the hurricane season when our region can be hit with severe coastal storms.

The safety of the public in our parks and on our streets must always be a top priority.
