311 Emergency

Last night, as I was passing through Tompkins Square Park, I noticed the backside of the new gimpy elm. By backside, I mean the side that faces into the park. This is what I saw:

What might look like a hole in the tree is actually sap leaking out from a split:

This tree is splitting down the middle. There's a good chance it will fall before the Parks Department is able to cut it down.

People should call 311 before this tree splits open completely. I hope it's not too late!
