daily snapshot: tree museum

Tree Preservation Zone

"Took all the trees, put 'em in a tree museum/
And charged the people a dollar and a half just to see 'em."

Joni Mitchell/Counting Crows (for the younger set), "Big Yellow Taxi"

This is on Wayne Avenue at Dixon, near the bus queues for the Silver Spring Metro.

Love Joni, but that line always buggedme a "tree museum"is an arboretum and she could easily have worked the correct word into her rhyme scheme.

I do think the fences serve a valid purpose on Wayne though - considering the state of the rest of downtown SS's street trees/
