175. I've been through this too. Doesn't it feel like it was done to YOU?
I feel things like this in my body as though my heart would just break. I can't understand this kind of
callousness. On many country roads I've driven down I've seen crews take a big commercial mower turn vertically
and mounted on a big 'arm' that extends several feet and they were just going down the street sheering off
trees that reached over a person's fenceline. It looked like a war zone...horrific. Worse even than what was done
to your tree because the were just ripped to shreds.

I've been told by arborists that city crews are likely the culprits for spreading oak wilt and other diseases because
they cut down diseased trees and with the same tools cut healthy ones and are likely spreading it.

I think I'd not only sue but see if I could get public support by writing op eds, talking to arborists, etc.
That way they'd not only have to pay but would be getting public pressure to change their ways.
