A trim off the top

Tony Hollis from Mike Waters Tree Service in Catawissa, MO., chainsaws a tree Wednesday on Goodfellow Boulevard near Gateland Avenue in St Louis, MO. Ongoing roadway construction and improvements by the City of St. Louis requires the removal of about two dozen trees, some which have roots that are damaging the sidewalks, says Josh Kambitch of the City of St. Louis.

I was working on a different story, tracking down school administration members, when I passed this crew removing trees from a city block. Fortunately I was able to return and make a few pictures. Opting to shoot from below, pointing upwards, I knew I was in the right spot when crew members remarked that I would be showered in wood shavings.
