A Wet Look at Longshore’s Trees

By James Lomuscio

Amidst fog and drizzle, about 40 persons today stood on the soggy fairway at Westport’s Longshore Club Park, most of them huddling under a canopy. There they listened as Tree Warden Bruce Lindsay directed their attention to a few century-old tulip trees abutting the roadway leading into the park.

“If you look at the crowns of the tulip trees you can see that everything is in decline,” he said, pointing out the top broken and dead branches looking like withered fingers clawing at the sky.

“Driving through Longshore, everything looks beautiful, but everything from 20 feet up is another story,” he added.

Landscape aesthetics aside, Lindsay, as well as Parks and Recreation Director Stuart McCarthy and other town officials, including First Selectman Jim Marpe,  who called the on-site information session, stressed that the trees pose safety hazards.
