They were all dying from Enlarged Testicular issues, so drinking and smoking were the least of their worries

Sorry, this is probably not the right thread to ask, but anyway...

Did you notice that the trees just north of the North Pool (near 1WTC) are leafless? Does anyone know why? Can anyone in New York check if the trees are dead?

Most likely from the chlorine or whatever they use in the pool water.

That's what I think too. They've looked kinda drab for a couple years now. My guess is that the wind blows in their direction quite often and they get too much of whatever is in that water... maybe even too much water period.

Just a reflection on 4WTC's glass.

Looks like they are cleaning up the rebar and relocating the bend tables from the lower floor of the East side of the tower. Could they be preparing to erect some steel on the East side? No sure how they could do it without a crane on the North East corner. I did not think the crane would arrive for another couple months.

Maybe it's the wind, since ALL the other trees are doing fine, the chlorine in the water doesn't seem to affect the trees around the south pool, or the ones around the north pool.

I was wondering if the trees are actually dead, because I can't see leaves on them from the earthcam perspective.

I really love the greenery around this place, it makes it warm and alive.
