Here’s an idea – provide more bike parking – then people wouldn’t be forced to lock to trees. Yes, there are bike posts on Yonge south of College, but they are often filled up.
The damage wasn’t as bad as the reader said, but a lot of bark on the trunks of some trees had been rubbed away, making them more susceptible to the ravages of weather and road salt, which often kills sidewalk trees.
There’s a big bicycle rack just up the street and other locking posts nearby, but many cyclists prefer to lock their bikes to the trees and conveniently overlook the damage it does.
