Avery Tree Removal Infuriates Neighbors
Just last week, Jamie Simpson and Denice Kresker had a shaded area to relax next to a pool in the backyard of their Whiting Avenue home.
Only now they have a view of an estimated 15-foot high dirt pile along an old railroad bed.
But they aren’t alone. Eight homes on Whiting Avenue, plus several more on Hazelnut Street, have a mountain of dirt and rocks behind their homes as construction continues on the new Avery School.
Construction crews removed close to 40 trees over the past week without the knowledge of the School Building Rehabilitation Committee, which is overseeing the project, committee members told Dedham Patch.
