BROOKLYN -

Neighbors in Sheepshead Bay are wondering when the Parks Department is going to pick up a tree that is obstructing a street. 

City officials told News 12 that the tree fell on East 16th Street after heavy rain on Monday. The FDNY cut it up into pieces and moved it to the curb in front of a home. 

The Parks Department said it would move the branches as soon as possible. They also said that they respond to nearly 80,000 tree-related requests each year.
