A Downtown reader sends in pics of a row of street trees on 6 blocks of Dallas St. that were chopped down over the weekend. The trees are distinctive because most of them were planted in the actual street, not on the adjacent sidewalk. They were planted in the street between parking spaces about 6 years ago, around the same time a single-lane-wide section of sidewalk that now serves a bus stop was installed in front of the HPD headquarters building at the corner of Travis and Dallas.
Here’s a view from above of a row of stumps that sits in front of the McDonald’s at 808 Dallas St.:
A row of stumps guarded by bollards now form a row along the south side of the street, from Austin St. to Milam.
