The donut shape of this maple tree near Beach Street, struck me as odd. The tree was most likely pruned so it wouldn't interfere with the electrical and communication wires. Tree branches can be a huge problem around wires; I know because we lost our telephone service once due to tree branch growing right into a wire and almost severing it.
I wish all the wires could be relocated underground . . . now there's a good public works project that could employ lots of people.
