N&R reports on an incident right up the street from me:

Attention, tree lovers of Greensboro:

The red ribbons recently placed on trees in Green Hill Cemetery are part of a plant inventory.

They do not, repeat, DO NOT indicate plans for tree removal.

Apparently, someone made that assumption this past weekend and removed some 300 ribbons from trees and shrubs placed there by a professional botanist who is donating his time to inventory the plants in this 52-acre cemetery.

“You would think that if somebody had a question, they would call and ask,” city cemetery supervisor Mike Moye said. “I’m not sure what they hoped to accomplish.”

Trust me, way too many persons of interest here in tony Fisher Park to speculate on who done it.
