New Haven Independent City: Tree Training On The Way:
After the oaks on Moti Sandman’s street were “murdered” by a city contractor, the city is taking steps to avoid killing any more.
That was the takeaway from a meeting of neighbors and city officials on Tuesday night. Beaver Hills Alderman Moti Sandman (pictured) and Alderman Carl Goldfield organized the meeting in response to constituent complaints about the sorry state of neighborhood trees.
After trees on Sandman’s street were gravely damaged by the installation of new sidewalks, the parks and public works departments are teaming up to ensure that future improvements don’t make the same mistake.
