This is a flash report, report 5 in a series.
I had a reliable report that construction has progressed to the Hyatt Regency Hotel, not that far from the Destroyed Nesting Area. In fact, in better days, the Charles River White Geese used to visit them.
I walked Memorial Drive from the BU Bridge to the eastern end of the established construction zone.
Clearly, massive numbers of excellent trees are marked for and slated for destruction.
The western end of the construction zone now extends to at least the Memorial Drive bridge going over the traffic circle at the BU Bridge. The eastern end now runs to Endicott Street. That includes a few trees between Endicott Street and the first of the construction trailers.
On a visual analysis, based on my good knowledge of the situation, a very significant part of the impending destruction, if not all, corresponds to parts of the DCR’s outrageous tree destruction plan that was blessed in the 2014 State House vote.
I have, once again, taken a lot of photographs. I will report further once I have this very large amount of work fully processed.
