Further Environmental Destruction by the City of Cambridge. This time in Kendall Square
The following trees have been destroyed in Kendall Square. I understand they are almost all on the inbound side of Main Street.
This destruction occurred, as near as I can gather, before the outrage on the Cambridge Common and, of course, before the latest charm offensive by fake groups and city employees, lying about their sainthood and omitting their vileness.
Thank God for MassDOT which seems to be the only barrier responsible people have as protection against a very destructive city government and TEN destructive city councilors.

The source of this list is the destruction posting by the city employee supposedly protecting trees. I have omitted nonsensical crap from the list as posted. Omitted crap includes the usual bragging about saplings.
Contractors get paid to destroy. Contractors get paid for saplings. “Everybody” is happy.
This report is based on two independent observations by people well familiar with the area. The second person provided this list after checking to see that they were gone.
I am not providing names. In the City of Cambridge, it can be dangerous to expect responsible behavior out of the City of Cambridge. And if anybody challenges this statement, I have one word for them: Monteiro, Monteiro, Monteiro, Monteiro.
And, oh yeah, the guy who was condemned by three levels of court for destroying Monteiro’s life had the Police Station named after him.
Monteiro, of course, is the black Cape Verdian department head who was fired by the then City Manager (and police station namesake) in retaliation for filing a women’s rights complaint.
It is dangerous to expect self-proclaimed saints in the City of Cambridge to be saints in reality.
