Can’t See the Forest or the Trees

Sometimes it’s the grammar or punctuation on a sign that has me scratching my head. This time, it’s the context: A block-long construction project with nary a tree in sight. Look closer, and all you see is a giant excavated pit.

Turns out, a Tree Protection Zone is designed to ensure construction doesn’t disturb trees surrounding the area, as well as any root systems that might branch into the site.
