We're under tree siege in the City of Miami
Now that we know what to look for, we can see the tiny signs the the city and county put up to warn us about tree killing. These signs were found by Tree Watch's Santiago Villegas on US1. I guess the county feels that this is adequate, you know, putting tiny signs, with tiny type on a highway where people are driving at speeds of 50 mph or more.
This sign, with a few more were posted on July 18, 2011. The sign says that the City of Miami Public Works Dept. is making Capital Improvements. The median at US1 and 30th Court will have four trees removed and 29 will be relocated in the public right of way.
Maybe this needs to be done, but again, no one was notified other than these pale small yellow signs. And people may be against the project and have a right to question it. If just one person complains, the project will be stopped. For more info, you may call the Public Works Dept. at 305-416-1200.
The Grove Tree Watch committee plans on appealing this.
