Neighbours of an infill building property on Connaught Avenue are angry that a towering maple tree was cut down this week despite the developer’s assurance that the tree would be saved.

The tree, roughly 70 years old and with a trunk nearly a metre across at its widest, came down Wednesday at 859 Connaught Ave., which runs off Carling Avenue opposite Lincoln Fields Mall.

Response was immediate and furious.
