…at least, not the towering one at Town Hall.
Alert “06880” reader JP Vellotti has long admired the apple tree at the foot of the old Bedford Elementary School, just above the Myrtle Avenue stone wall.
In fact, he picks apples from it every year, and makes a pie.
This year, he may have to go to Stew’s.
Yesterday, JP spotted a fresh new sign on the trunk of the old tree:
The notice — posted by the tree warden — says that “this shade tree, the property of the Town of Westport,” will be removed in 10 days, or thereafter.
“Any person or organizations” objecting to the removal must appeal in writing within 10 days. The address — 110 Myrtle Avenue — is the very same building at the top of that handsome lawn.
How do you like them apples?
