On Sunday, while everyone was sleeping to the sound of the nor’easter rain and wind, the big pine tree in the back of the garden split and half of it crashed into the garden. Luckily no one was hurt and nothing (other than the tree) appears damaged.

We have contacted the NYC Forestry service for removal, and hopefully they will come soon. Seems like a dangerous situation.

Thanks to the tree for keeping us cool and dry all these years and hopefully it is not permanently damaged. Hello to sunlight in the back of the garden.
