Tree Trimming Time Lapse

A notice came over the wire on Monday that Prince Street would be closed on Wednesday morning for “tree maintenance.” Our street, like most of Charlottetown, has lost a lot of trees in the last few years; Queen Square, and the St. Paul’s Anglican Church yard has been particularly affected, and so I feared that we were about to lost even more trees. 

In an effort to memorialize what we might lose, I propped my iPhone on the front window and set it running in “time lapse” mode. As it happens, it was just a trimming exercise; no trees came down. But the resulting time lapse video shows a truck — from The Branch Manager — that, when sped up like this, takes on a velociraptor quality.

It really does have an animated quality at that speed. I hope I remember to do the same when our local tree-trimming happens.

"Branch Manager": Good one.
