I’m not sure if the city’s at fault, but if it is then I think they should definitely have someone inspect the trees from now on.
I think there should be some sort of standardization and maintenance to make sure everything is up to par so that something like this doesn’t happen again.
It’s imperative that the city has nature and natural life in it, but they should also take responsibility for its upkeep and maintenance.
I think the woman’s family should sue the city for not having the proper safety measures in place. We need to make sure that everybody who’s supposed to be making the city safer is actually doing his or her job.
It sounds heartless, but I don’t think there’s much anyone can do about something like that. These things are unfortunate, but they happen.
The city should check up on the trees in the parks, because there’s no way to know when something like this can happen again.
Maybe the city should monitor the sizes of the trees.
The city should be responsible, and they should have to pay for that woman’s funeral services. They also need to go check out the area where the tree fell.
