A contractor working on a state project to rebuild Beacon Street in Somerville recently removed most of the trees along one stretch without notifying the city or residents.
In response, LadyLazerJ reports, somebody placed anguished memorial notes and candles on all the stumps. And as you can see from her photo, some people don't care about the destruction of the stately truffula trees, um, oaks.
Another stump and message.
