Workers and the remains of the tree: Photo by MBTA.
UPDATE: Service has been restored.
No trolleys, only buses between Reservoir and Kenmore due to a tree falling on the tracks in both directions.
maybe the T should send in the same hatchet men who have turned the Dorchester Red Line right of way into a treeless moonscape
or take some of the dozens of signs they posted along their Sydney St noise wall that read "Caution: Falling Tiles" (because somehow they can't stabilize them!?)and change them to "Caution: Falling Trees"
People along the D Line had a fit because the T swooped-in and cleared a ton of trees on the right-of-way. What really sucks about this is that pretty much everything that could be done was done to prevent this, and it happened anyway.
This appears to be right at Beaconsfield, where the T's contractor is engaged in what seems like a never-ending reconstruction of the Dean Rd. bridge. I wonder if the construction had a hand in helping this happen - there was a lot of excavation and I'm sure some roots were taken out.
