Old picture, notice the two smaller pine trees to the sides of the stairs in front of the flagpole.
From this morning, no more pine trees.
If you're gonna cut them down, at least pull the stumps.
As you can see both of the pine trees are now gone. This is because the grounds crew cut down both trees to keep the symmetry. Now, I am not a super green-environmentalist-advocate, nor do I drive a Hummer, but I think it is kind of funny that the other healthy tree was cut down too. Didn't the grounds crew read (or watch) the Lorax as a child? We need the trees! You see, my friends, trees are the answer.
Stay classy, not UMassy.
