It would be interesting to track if there were reports of bikes stolen at these addresses. I remember a neighbor who had the bike he locked to a small tree stolen and the tree looked like this the day after.

First of all, the comment below was hilarious.

Second of all, maybe if the asshole bicyclist hadn't locked his bike to a tree (which is a real dickish thing to do to to the streetscape and also a giant fuck you to all you bike whiners that don't wanna park it at a regular rack), well maybe it's karma.

If Boston got some of those nifty parking space racks that Somerville uses and, you know, actually provided parking for cyclists where cyclists typically park bikes?

About six years ago, a newly planted tree across from 1-5 Peterborough was cut down in order to steal a bike. A neighbor of mine reported seeing a bike chained to the tree the previous night and awoke very early (for other reasons) to find the tree and bike both gone. Cyclists should NOT lock bikes to trees in any case (and I'm a cyclist).

Holy crap!! I can't believe a cyclist just posted about how the real victims were cyclists!! I was just thinking how it was only a matter of time till a post that was about something other than cyclists-as-victims, in this case freshly planted trees being vandalized, was going to be shifted into a post about cyclists-as-victims! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

Really, you think the comment is about self-centered bicyclists, rather than somebody making a simple hypothesis based on past experience? Now if he'd started complaining about trees attacking bicyclists, you might be onto something ...

No bike sympathy in this quarter. I'd like to stop the bikes from being locked to trees for this very reason.

maybe you have poor reading comprehension, but the post blamed cyclist, not made them the real victims. That is, if those cyclists didn't lock their bikes up to the trees, we probably wouldn't have people killing the trees.

Many young trees in In Hyde Square in JP have been killed this way through accidents and vandalism. It would be nice if we spent the extra $ on sturdy iron tree protectors, which also make great bike racks.

They waged a war with the City of Cambridge repeatedly destroying trees planted in front of their building.
