Both Marion Mills and Allan Brill (Glenview Neighborhood Association

Hello All,

Attached is a letter regarding the oak tree at the Dimond Grove picnic 
area in Dimond Park. This is not a decision Tree Services made lightly 
and we understand the community’s connection and admiration for this tree.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Hi Giacomo: If your department decides to cut it down can you give us a 
weeks notice, so the community can organize a good bye ceremony? Thanks
