We don't know whether Ikea planted the tree and someone else brought it down or the blue-and-yellow presence on Beard Street committed the arborcide. More to the point, though, the Swedish retailer is now repainting all the giant blue cranes that once repaired ships at the old Todd Shipyard. They may be going from blue to gray, or it could just be primer for them to come back blue and yellow. The landscaping still needs a tweak, though, before all those happy shoppers start rolling in.
