Conditions: Hot and Humid. The Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory, and cautioned against doing any labor outside… but I went BRONX Bound anyhow. The sun was replaced by clouds by early afternoon- not grey storm clouds exactly, it was more like the sky filled with pale smoke. Much of the brightness of the sun burned through the cloud layer. By the time I took my break for lunch, the clouds matured and burst, dumping buckets of rain for a very brief moment.
This tree on Bronx Park South and Vyse needed some help. I didn’t even know there were bricks in the tree bed until I got to work. The basis for my decision to select this site for service had as much to do with the objects in the tree branches as the overgrown condition of the tree bed. Above resembled a stuffed animal urban jungle home!
