One way or another, the “Ghetto Tree” may soon be coming down in a North End Springfield neighborhood.
Resident Earl Reese put up that collection of junk hanging from a tree in the front yard of his house in the Northgate subdivision.
He says it’s a protest against crime and trash in his neighborhood… and even serenaded aldermen about it at Christmastime last year.
But after numerous complaints, city zoning officials are looking to see if it violates any ordinances… and police came to Reese’s home and examined the display over the weekend.
Reese tells 970 WMAY’s “Bishop On Air” that he’s made his point and expects to take the display down next week.
