How many times have we warned you about these trees? Now that their mayhem is not longer restricted to Queens, perhaps you’ll listen. A tree in Central Park gave several people “quite a scare” when it unexpectedly fell on Saturday. In NY1’s footage it looks to be close to 40 feet high, and had it fallen during the busy season could have easily killed someone. These things are a menace and should be regulated at least as tightly as trans-fats.
