"At 8:54 a.m., the DPW informed police of public trees being cut down on Essex Street. " That's all there is to say about the devastation of 100s of trees that were taken down at 344 Essex Street? I know the house was in disrepair, as noted in this story http://lynnfield.patch.com/articles/then-and-now-38d293a5#photo-8721260. But, have you seen what the lot looks like now? I thought Lynnfield is a Tree City USA town. So much for that.

Thanks to our police for setting up an officer on Chestnut St to slow people down.

Good morning Lee - at the time that was pretty much the basic information in the log. However, this particular matter appears to involve three specific trees that were cut down near an occupied property boundary on Essex Street, I don't believe it was actually the #344 property but am not absolutely certain as I type this. Outside of LHS, I have not been up around there in a while.

Hi William, I wasn't knocking your reporting, rather just stating my disgust with what has happened to that property. You need to take a drive by. It's really sickening.

Actually it was the 344 Essex Street property in question, I was in there today for the police log again...
