The one right outside where I live, in fact. I thought they were just trimming the branches that overhang the road for safety reasons, but when I got home, the tree was gone.
So now there's nothing to provide a little privacy between my front door and the main road, or to deflect the worst of the afternoon sun. I hope there's a damn good reason for removing that tree.
Edited to add (July 31): An email from my friendly neighbourhood town council informs me that the tree had to be removed because its base was rotting. I asked them pretty please to plant a new one asap!
