Throwback Thursday

This is an oldie but goodie.  The history of the Quad trees is fraught with occasional despair, and in a couple of much-lamented episodes, the trees have had to be thinned (as happened a few years ago) or taken down altogether (as was the case in 1987-88 when we had a blight of Dutch Elm disease that required taking them all out).

Back when the Quad trees were thicker and more plentiful, fall was especially grand.  Here’s a Throwback Thursday aerial from 2005, showing the trees in their former splendor.
