Trees cut down in front of #4

Out at Shillito yesterday and saw that on #4 the three trees guarding the front of the basket had been cut down, probably that day. Curious if that kind of stuff is communicated with you guys ahead of time and if there are any plans to change the basket location to compensate?

We do notice the trees which are marked for removal. We aren't consulted about it. We just have to deal with it.
The emerald ash borer is the cause. Parks & Rec (Streets and Roads actually) is taking out dying trees before they actually die and fall on someone.

It sounds like Parks is willing to plant some new trees. Strategically placed trees will do a lot.
The club is looking at it though.
