I have had several Conversations with Tree-People over the past few weeks.
This photo is taken on the east side of Bay Street immediately north of Bloor Street.
The Trees have about an Eighteen-Inch Square (just over two square feet) of Breathing Space.
There is no way that these trees can grow.
They will remain weak and Defenseless against the first Blight that decides to take them on.
Then the city will waste more money and replace them with Newer Saplings that likewise will be given just Two Square Feet of Breathing Space.
