A Tree for Tuesday

I was circling around St. Michael’s tower in search of the Kestrels that have been frequenting the raptor anvil, as I like to call it, atop the cross up there. These local falcons will be a subject of a future week’s worth of posts. Yes, they have been active!

This excursion gave me an opportunity to revisit an old friend: a gigantic American Elm growing in a Sunset Park front yard. Actually, it pretty much is the front yard of the small row house it dominates. In the picture above, I’m standing next to the fence that pretends to contain this magnificent specimen, and aiming the camera up along the trunks, which look they’re engaged in conversation.

Which, of course, they are.

Ominously, next door is a construction site, and they’re excavating, which means this giant’s roots have probably been compromised.
