The Trees of Toronto - Grenville Street
A day has passed.
This photo was taken on the 23rd of January.
It was silly of me to worry about that Gravel-and-Clay Layer. It won’t do anything to harm the Fungi, Nematodes and Microbiological life that normally supports a tree.
The gravel-and-clay layer has been covered with a nice batch of Concrete, dumped from a truck.
Apologies for the blurry shot. I think I was shaking with rage.
This tree is adjacent to the one we have been studying.
This tree is surrounded by Paving Stones for all but a four-square-feet area.
In the centre where air can reach the soil we have a twelve-inch diameter of soil exposed to the elements.
Here’s what I want to know: Who in City Hall is in charge of this program? They might be wizards at algebra, but they failed (or failed to take) High-School Botany.
