    Good to have you back, give me a call sometime.

  • Eddyde

    Reading all the comments here about “tree-gate” reminds me of my country residence that is part of a private community. Nothing is a more contentious issue than trees, those who want to cut them down for the slightest reason vs those who want to save them at all cost.

  • Andrew Porter

    People—including you—are entitled to express their opinions on this. But you are being nasty to other posters, and likely violating ToS here.

  • Herman on Henry

    Don’t you have an old post card to post? By the way, mind your business.

  • MaggieO

    just out of curiosity, did anyone who knows the exact address of the tree report to 311 already? Herman can continue minding his own business.

  • Herman on Henry

    I would say that you’re late to the party. If nobody on this thread called 311 after all their complaining then they are just as much idiots as I am.

    Whatever you say sheriff

  • Herman on Henry

    I said nothing offensive. Opinionated. Yes. Again, don’t you have an old post card to post sheriff?

  • Herman on Henry

    People should watch what they post on here. If the sheriff does not like it he will delete the post and cut you off. He’s very sensitive and easily offended. Isn’t that right sheriff?

    You got it all under control don’t you sheriff? Expect nothing less

  • StudioBrooklyn

    For the record, I don’t find your posts offensive and I disagree with Andrew’s flagging them. However, I stand by my assertion that this allegation should be taken seriously (by us, the community for whom these trees render enjoyment and shade) and that your consistent remarks about minding our business are perplexing. This isn’t a quarreling couple or someone buying tacky furniture, it’s a public tree and public demand for more information about its destruction is fully warranted. You can explain why you’re so eager to deflect attention from it, or you can drop the indignation.

  • Local_Montague_Man

    Herman, what topics are ok for us to discuss here? You understand this is a neighborhood message board, right? Please give us a list of things we are allowed to discuss.

    Much appreciated

  • Jean

    Yes, it is our business. Just because you don’t care doesn’t mean that members of the community are wrong to raise the issue. Just because who you choose to be an island doesn’t mean others should.

  • Andrew Porter

    Don’t feed the trolls!
