BC Hydro employs several Certified Utility Arborists. They trim Vancouver’s trees in a bifurcated – split – way so the trees don’t interfere with the power lines. Meanwhile, East Van kids like throwing old shoes over the same power lines. The shoes depicted here are Fluevogs, which is a nod to gentrification.
It’s a literal environmental footprint.
