How long will it be until we know the fate of the trees on the Promenade and at River Cafe, following last summer’s aborcidal salty spray from the NYC Waterfalls? The Eagle published a story yesterday, and we spoke with Parks Department spokesman Phil Abramson today about what the city is doing to monitor the trees as spring arrives:
Now that spring is here, we are keeping a close eye on our blossoming trees. Those trees near the Brooklyn Heights Promenade are honey locusts and this species does not start to bloom until later in the spring. The flowers mentioned in the Brooklyn Eagle article are early bloomers. As the honey locusts by the promenade bloom, Parks will inspect and evaluate them closely.
