On Oct. 22, concerned residents of E. 77th Street called 19 Action News after a huge rotten tree came crashing down. The tree was split in half with parts of it landing on two vacant lots.
After some homework done by residents, they learned that Charter One Bank owned the land and they got busy looking for someone to tear down the tree that many feared would damage nearby homes or hurt someone.
After 19 Action News' story, the city hired a tree contractor who came out on Wednesday, Oct. 30 and cut up and hauled away the tree.
The residents say they are very happy it has been taken care of.
