What about NPS? In the median of Independence across from the MLK memorial construction entrance there's a +18" diameter elm that's broken at the base, soil is upheaved, and is leaning on light pole. The light pole globes are broken and is the only thing holding up the tree. When it falls it will fall on the right and center lanes of westbound Independence.
