Willow tree on 86 b/w 34 and 35

Looks like whoever is gutting the house there is also taking down the majestic willow tree today. Not much to do about it, but it is a very good tree  :-[

It is a beautiful tree, unfortunately it was planted in the worst possible place. The roots of the willow tree are undermining the foundation of the two houses it sits between.

We removed a much smaller willow from in front of my building a little over a decade ago and still had some pipe clogging issues....
