Sadly, the new trees, without any leaves, look more dead than alive.
Sort of funny (-sad) how we pour infinite amounts of concrete and build up our cities, until there is little to no natural green spaces anymore (unless you go get yourself to the neighborhood park or run on weekends to burbs).
We call in the tree transplant folks to line that narrow strip around our sidewalks with a few trees and we call it a day.
Urban sprawl is leaving us with stoic concrete and steel, but very little natural warmth and beauty.
A few sad looking sapplings can’t make up for the lush forests and living landscape that we’re destroying. 😉
