A pic of a tree I killed. Actually... the higher ups were given a choice last year. (1) We disturb the root system to repair a small part of a parking lot planter lateral line or (2) just cap the thing off and see what develops. Reply: "Fix it." I warned them that this might happen and it got reported on a work order as "tree weeping due to lack of water." Only reason it's dry in the second picture is that system was off the previous night due to next day mowing.
