Sadly I've noticed most people do not want to replace trees lost to disease or hurricanes. Seems like most of them do not want to deal with the leaves/debris clean up while forgetting the benefits of trees in urban areas. To me, the benefits outweigh the inconveniences.

I've planted a street tree bringing the total # of trees on my small lot up to 3.5 (half-tree is dying/dead). Meanwhile My neighbor lost 3 trees and has not replanted - granted it's a rental but still. I asked the owner to plant a free tree from the city and in exchange I offered to maintain it, but the city refused because it's a rental property. Tree canopy on my street has been declining over the past 10 years.

Update on the new Circle K going up at CFR & Crystal Lake....

I figured back in June when construction was just beginning on this place that it would be open for business well before now.

But as we can see, they're still toiling away at it.

Got some shots of the exterior and interior....

Much to my surprise, it appears that when completed, it's going to look like a convenience store.  :dontknow:

Maybe it’s taking so long because this is Ms. Ponte’s new gig…nevertheless, it will be a definite improvement on that corner.
