Giant melting snow pile -- defenseless tree

Freshly fallen snow, very pretty. Thawing snow scraped up from a parking lot, not so much.

It may not be obvious in the photo but this pile of melting snow is about 10 feet tall. It is a result of snow removal from a large parking lot. Space for this amount of snow is at a premium, and consequently it has been heaped upon this struggling tree.

Hopefully spring will bring some relief for the tree, but surely there will be more snow before winter decides to leave us.
