TATOOS and HOUNDS

There are 80,000 dogs registered in NYC.  Over 500,000 in all the boroughs.

That is a lot of  POOP………..the favorite dog is the Yorkshire Terrier……followed by the Shih Tzu.

IT’S THE PITS !!!

36,000 trees die every year in New York.  The city depends on volunteer tree pruners to keep them alive.  I took the “Citizens Pruner Course” at the Armory in Central Park…passed the test………and I am an official “Tree Pruner” for NYC.  For 10 years I have watched over all the trees in my neighborhood.

Very few dog owners in New York “CURB” their dog.  The owners think the tree pits are there for the dog’s pleasure.

All boarded up!  Dogs just piss on the fence!

And so the dog “poops” instead !!!

Citizen Pruners encourage the owners of apartment buildings to plant flowers in the tree pits……..the flowers get watered……..and so does the tree!

Hostas…..ivy and impatiens…..a pretty pit indeed.

This pit is two doors away………in front the Bancroff Apartments………SAD !!!

A lone Iris survives in this pit on 74th street…………and it is soooooo pretty.

I planted these for the winter………….they will last through December.

The strings are there for a purpose……..when the dogs jump into the pit….they get tangled up and jump back out………no piss to kill the flowers.

No flowers……..so the tree doesn’t get any attention…..except from the dogs!

A volunteer on West 71 st. street……….planting her pit.

Another sick pit.  It costs the city $700 to plant another tree…….and thousands to remove the dead one.

This little sapling is newly planted.  Let’s hope it survives.

I planted these in the Spring…….ALL PLASTIC!  They all survived the piss!

Construction debris left behind……….tree killer stuff.

“But I only pee in PITS”

Coleus gone wild………….planted in front of the building on West 64th street………where Madonna lives.

Wire cages in Wall Street……….ugly but effective.

The POOP FACTORY looking for his favorite pit.

UH OH!  His name is “TROUBLE”……..staring at my pit!

My neighbor Joe plants these pits………and changes them with the seasons.  The dog owners actually think that the dog’s urine is “Watering” the flowers.  The SALTS in the urine is killing the tree and the flowers.

I planted these last week………….and the dog piss kills 2 a week……and I have to replace them.

The laying of the stones on West 72nd………..back breaking labor.
