This morning’s “06880” referenced an earlier post, with a photo about the sudden removal of trees from the Stop & Shop parking lot.
As if on cue, Mark Mathias spotted this scene earlier today, in the same spot:
As promised, diseased and/or overgrown trees have been replaced by hardy new ones.
Enjoy the view — and the shade!
It would be nice if the landlord (and Stop & Shop) would use the short parking spaces on either side of the trees to install shopping-cart holding areas. Many stores outside of Westport use them. As for the loss of a few parking spaces, consider how many are lost all the time by shopping carts scattered throughout the lot.
Not to mention the dents on cars caused by runaway carts.
and for the TREES themselves: take the burlap off the root ball, water, water, water all summer.
