man down! man down!

A mysterious tree vandal? Or simply a case of a shallow root system and absolutely no tree stake support? We'll never know for sure, but there's a casualty on 9th Street outside of Fields Crossing. Can she be saved? Let's see how many days it takes to get someone over to repair or replace!

The problem stems from not enough water getting to the root system. Note the surrounding paving; I cannot tell from the photograph but it's likely the surrounding buildings add to the problem by shielding the tree from any natural rainfall.
