another example of how it can be hard for a street tree to grow naturally--at some point it's growth often gets in the way of people's needs and then it has to be pruned/cut back or sometimes even removed.
the trip across the bridge and the differing temps between one side and the other is also an example of microclimates in action and how quickly they can affect the current weather and the long-term climate.
