The giving tree

street stump
“Once there was a tree…and she loved a little boy.” Shel Silverstein.
In 1975 Charlottesville developed a street tree plan.
It was never implemented.
The way we get many of our street trees is making developers plant them,
when the development requires a site plan.
But when the required tree dies, does anyone replace it?
Street Stump!


this the time of year when smart folk leave town and even smarter ones stay behind to rewrite laws and approve development projects.
These are random empty chairs. Once upon a time there was a guideline at UVA hospital discouraging paintings/photographs from being displayed in the hospital that depicted empty chairs.
