Despite Henri’s failure to strike with the punch we’ve all been waiting for, a rogue tropical breeze brought down a large section of a city tree directly in front of our house.

It all happened on Sunday afternoon, but we made a few phone calls and were amazed at how quickly the City of Northampton responded. The firefighters arrived a few minutes after our call to public safety. The very friendly team checked for damage and all surrounding cables before determining there was no potential fire hazard.

Rich Parasiliti, the tree guard, arrived in pouring rain and a stronger and stronger wind to take stock. He patiently answered our questions and promised to send a municipal team the next morning. We also agreed with him on the need to remove the rest of the broken tree and its companion tree, which we and the city had been watching for some time for age and decay.

At 8 a.m. on Monday morning, DPW crews arrived with tree removal equipment and worked for almost four hours to remove the tree from the house. They worked efficiently and carefully to complete the removal with as little damage as possible to our home, lawn and gardens. The way they managed to get around our beloved daylily garden with their extremely bulky equipment and ultimately the broken tree as it made its way to the chipper was a pretty impressive and biting feat to watch. They did and we are very grateful to them.

Most importantly, we are so grateful to know firsthand that our city’s emergency services are trained to respond quickly and professionally to the needs of Northampton residents.
