Letter: New trees on Burlingame Avenue
September 23, 2013, 05:00 AM

Editor,  

The portion of Burlingame Avenue nearing completion is — or was — looking great until today, with the appearance of the new trees being planted. They are the sorriest excuse for “specimen” trees I’ve ever seen, looking like dense shrubs with helter-skelter branches ascending straight up and perched on top of long poles. The label says they are “Zelkovas,” which are in the elm family, and should have beautiful, lateral-spreading branches, like the one that resided in and extended majestically over half of the Chiappelone’s Burlingame Garden Center for years.

One can only hope that with major professional pruning they will eventually overcome their early formative years of neglect.
