Rock Creek Park tree is removed

In late October, a griper wrote us concerned about a damaged tree on a bike path in Rock Creek Park. He was especially concerned following the death of a Mount Pleasant man who was hit by a falling tree branch and worried that the branch on the tree, just north of Q Street, could snap and “pulverize” someone.

The griper says he called 311 but couldn’t get the issue resolved. So he posted his complaint on The Daily Gripe.

And on Saturday, the National Park Service had the tree chopped down.
