Workers from H & H Tree Service in Dundas were taking down the big cottonwoods today, the ones adjacent to the Ames Mill dam on Bridge Square. I took the photo on the left at about 11 am and the one on the right about 4 pm, so I’m not sure if they finished.
I know one of the trees was dying, as I noticed it when I took the photo of the cormorant back in July. I’m not sure why they all had to be taken down, though. It’s too bad. I’ll miss them.
