Cleft hollow trunk?!?
Should’ve been spotted by neighbors and taken down by the city.

What goes up must come down. Too bad, that looked like a nice shade tree.
Tree appears to be on private property, not City responsibility, but well within the 200’ UI swath of destruction.

Private property tree. Appears to be an Old Norway maple with poor structure and obvious cavity. Across street and into property from U.I. No story here. How many street trees fell in this tough winter? Not many. Trees do die/ fail at a rate of about 1-2% a year and are generally easy to predict. This tree will be missed by it apartment residents and people who pass by this property.

Linden Tree, I believe. NOT a Norway Maple.

Your right Mark, I drove by this morning. Linden. Hard to tell from photo. I hope the owner request some street trees from the City.
