The botched Brookfield Place construction that has caused the community to walk long circuitous detour routes, and be forced to view ugly scaffolding, is having its toll on the trees. The strip of pruned sycamore trees by the marina have been either killed or shocked by the scaffolding that was over them, depriving them of water. Other trees under scaffolding on Vesey Street are also dying, and Brookfield has installed water bags.
The beautiful trees by the marina have special value for anyone in the community who lived through September 11th, 2001. This damage is outrageous, and the BPCA or governor needs to step in and make sure that Brookfield completes the work in a timely manner.
