A few days ago I could hear sawing, you know the real loud kind when they are taking trees down? When I made my way to the park I saw only three, flat stumps of where these beauties were. I am really glad I am very careful to keep so many shots in my camera! These were the only red leaved ones there ... and now they are gone. The groundsmen told me that they, along with some others there, had 'root wilt' (sounds like a cowboy name) and they had to go. I use it as a screen saver now on one of my computers at home.
