The Sign-Eating Tree

Charlie Brown had an ongoing battle with a particular kite-eating tree.  Well, ol’ Chuck better stay away from the Astor Street District.  There, the trees eat signs.
My memory is a little foggy about where this tree is, but I suspect it’s just north of the Ambassador East Hotel (1301 North State Parkway).
This isn’t the first tree revenge we’ve posted here.  Last month we showed you a tree attacking a manhole, and another one just getting started.
