The grounds maintenance crew made quick work of cutting up a spruce tree in Veterans Park that was blown down by high spring winds. At press time, another old tree (at Bernie Cuthair’s house) succumbed to the windy day. Forestry experts are investigating whether to take down some of the elder spruces, as a safety precaution.
