Recycle Ax Men: New York City Edition

Well.. almost.

NYC Parks Department (which is in charge of trees planted along streets) arrived to take down what was probably a 40+ year old tree. The tree had been losing branching in various storms, probably diseased or something and a liability for the city.

Took them about an hour of actual work.

Shocked how close the workers were to the falling pieces .

4x speed followed by the hour+ at normal speed for those especially bored.

No sound

By chance I happened across this image of what had fallen off the tree, I believe in a storm a year or two ago.

That tree was way older than 40. I'd wager more like 80-100.

These houses didn't get built until 1969. Before that this area was a rail yard along the railroad. At best it was planted when the houses were built. (I'd guess.)
