Odds are this oak tree will be dead within 3-7 years
Sunday, September 16, 2007

Soils have been disturbed (excavated) along the diagonal running from the front left to right rear in one photo. See the orange fence; soils on the house side are disrupted. Since virtually all of the big infill houses require a full footprint basement, the soil, along with the root structure, has been scooped out. A small pile has been left to backfill the foundation and landscape the front yard. Note how the lower limbs were cut: the ones facing the street were probably removed by the power company so as not to interfere with the overhead power lines.
