Weeks after the disastrous, unsupportable destruction of old growth trees on the Rivercross lawn in September, two more trees that once helped win Roosevelt Island designation a "Tree City USA" designation were taken down last week.

The trees, which formed a border between the West Promenade and the south end of Octagon Field are now just stumps.

RIOC has said they plan to replace trees cut down without notice, but these stumps are neighbors to others nearby left to rot in ground.

There's not even enough concern for esthetics to clear out the remains.
