Ways to Celebrate Spring: Cut Down Fifth Ave. Cherry Trees

So, the weather's getting nice. The trees are starting to bloom. What are you going to do? Chop down some cherry trees on Fifth Avenue, silly! The tipster who sent the aborcide photo writes:

The four or five cherry trees have been in bloom for only a few days now. People on the street were upset and one woman appeared to be reaching out to the city to save the last one...In front of 111 and 115 5th Ave, both managed by Winter Management (tree related pun possibilities endless), 6 trees were felled while in full bloom. Dom’s Tree Service Inc with a 516 area code did the hatchet job...There was no advertecture to enhance so why the clear-cutting?Because it's spring!
