Lisa W. Foderaro, reporting for the New York Times:

“Tree pruning is something where you don’t see the impact of deferring until there’s a tragedy,” said Councilman Brad Lander, a Democrat from Park Slope, Brooklyn, who joined with members of both parties to press for restorations to the parks budget. “As incidents have shown, there’s a real risk, and, hopefully, getting pruning back on a better schedule will mean New Yorkers will be safer.”
