Trees still down from last month’s storms

Lots of trees were blown down in recent summer storms – but that was weeks ago.

“Streets and Sanitation’s Bureau of Forestry has cleared the fallen trees on Chicago’s North Side but neglected cleanup on the South Side,” according to Action Now.

The group is holding a rally on Thursday, July 22,  at 10 a.m. in Back of the Yards (on 50th Street between Marshfield and Paulina) to highlight huge tree branches still blocking sidewalks.  Residents have called 311 repeatedly, according to the group.

The group says greater attention given to higher-income neighborhoods “illustrates the inequalities of city services in Chicago,” said Action Now.
