"I just walked through the Sunnyside Mall and the Dept. of Forestry is busy pruning the trees.  It’s been a long time since the mall trees got a haircut and it’s looking brighter already.  A gentle reminder that trees, when properly pruned, are much healthier.

Great first step for Sunnyside Mall’s bright new future!"


  1. There is no question that trees properly trimmed are a good thing. HOWEVER, mature shrubs cut all the way to ground will NOT grow back in a good way. They have lost their central trunk and will lose their shape. WHY this happened is incomprehensible. Correct pruning never calls for shrubs being clear cut!

  2. On Uptown Update, it says there were several comments posted and yet there was only one. That one was positive, of course. Where are the other comments!?!
