this morning workers were removing at least a dozen healthy trees from the treelawn and lawn of the Rita Bass Trauma and Emergency Medical Services Education Institute; requested info from public_relations(at)dhha.org but no response yet ...


UPDATE: and now re-forested!

there are now 16 trees planted where 14 were removed, and they are a thoughtful mix of crabapples near the corners, red oak along 6th Ave. and-run-of the-mill honey locust in the lawn

i've had no response to my email nor to a telephone message left for the Denver Health public affairs department, but there is now a sign thanking "Comcast volunteers"; this enabled me to find some further clues that the new trees went in Saturday the 25th; the second photo shows one of several trees that were poorly planted--many trunks were set too low or too high, dirt is piled up against trunks, some are even at a rakish angle

i hope Denver Health can confirm that there was a good reason to remove the old trees
