    You have to stand there all day and night with a taser. You’re probably not ready for that level of commitment. Thanks for your general interest however!

    Move to a place with no trees.

    Put up some sort of evidence that the tree is beloved by children, or that children are nearby. Maybe a “no littering” sign would work if it appeared to have been created by a child.

    Plant roses around it. They’re like nature’s barbed wire.

    How about the dog poop, or the (very slightly) more courteous dog people who put the poop in a bag but then throw it in the tree area for other people to clean up. Any way of nicely asking them … PLEASE CURB YOUR DOG?

    I think the roses is a good idea if they are thorny and at a distance where they make the tree unreachable.

    In my experience though, I think you have to accept the fact that people will leave sh1t in your tree. Just clean it up daily and think of it as giving the tree loving care. Then you will feel better and the litter won’t always be there bothering you.

    PS I know the tree, at least I know of one tree on Lexington with milk jugs, paper bags and all sorts of junk hanging from it. At first I thought it may have been done on purpose, for the birds or something. Now after reading your post it all comes clear.

    Technically, I don’t think you’re allowed to plant thorny things next to the sidewalk. It’s kind of a dick move if you think about it.
