Botanical Obstructions

Botanical obstructions can also be a problem for pedestrians. While trees, bushes, and other plantings are highly desirable, low-hanging branches, tree roots, or bushes that intrude on sidewalk space can be hazardous, especially for people with impaired vision. Cambridge is full of old trees that compromise sidewalk space but add greatly to the quality of life. Recognition of the need for clear passage for pedestrians and the need to accommodate trees and other important vegetation should be the guiding principles. Some situations may require ingenuity to resolve.
