What happened to the trees in front of Trader Joe’s?
  • LP November 1, 2012 - 12:34 pm #55325 Reply

    I noticed this afternoon that the trees in front of Trader Joe's have all been cut down?  Was this due to the storm snapping them or was this done by Trader Joe's to get better visibility/signage from the street?

    Anyone have any insight why this was done or when?  I hope it's the former and not the latter, I'd be very disappointed in Trader Joe's if it was.

    I find it highly unlikely TJs has anything to do with that.

    Maybe it was the beavers from Pentagon city.

    Agreed.

    Come On!!  We just had a huricane.  I walk by TJ's every day.  Those trees were bent over and hitting the street. Why would Trader Joe's want to cut them down.  Why would you want to run down one of the best additions to our neighborhood. A company that quietly donates a ton of food to the needy.

    They were simply clearing a wide path so the retired space shuttle can get to its permanent home in the new “park” at the Clarendon metro station.

    As I noted, it may have been from the Hurricane, but I walked by on Tuesday and didn't see any damage to the trees.  I am a huge fan of Trader Joe's and go there on a weekly basis and want nothing but for them to succeed.

     

    I'm not trying to bad mouth TJ's, I'm only trying to figure out what happened.

    When I first saw the trees trimmed, I thought of the exact same thing!

    LP. You didn't notice that Trader Joes now carries Tempura Lorax?

    This is actually funny.

    But I can't tell if this is funny or not.

    The branches were really low before. If you were taller than 5'6″ you had to duck, so perhaps it had something to do with that? Very strange timing though. I have to imagine tree cutting crews have other work to do these days…

    Each tree was bend over by the hurricane. 

     

    Let the facts rule.

    Those aren't the facts, just horrible grammar.

    Checked it out last night.  Every tree around that complex is there, except for the ones in front of TJ which are cut down to the base.

     

    I don't know what it looked like after the storm, but the rest of the trees look fine to me.
