Hoyt Park: the trees lose again

Anyone who has driven anywhere along the Menomonee River Parkway in the past several months knows that it's being reconstructed a little at a time. Most of it is pretty much completed by now, except for one last stretch along Hoyt Park (where I happen to live!) One small component of the large project is the rehabilitation of the Hoyt Park pedestrian suspension bridge, which connects the park proper with Hoyt Park Pool. It will be a great relief to see those sadly needed repairs.

However, there's always a catch, isn't there? So often the catch is tree removal. And so it is with the bridge. I happened to be driving by yesterday and saw a crew lopping off limbs over the bridge. They were back again to day clearing more trees on the other side of the river.

  1. Argh, make them stop! First the majestic Oaks on the County Grounds then the clear cutting of "buckthorn" near the DNR woods and now this! Wauwatosa...Tree City?! Not so much...
