Are Our Local Trees Being Tended To?
By an edhat reader:
Is the city looking into the health and safety of the many Italian stone pines like the one that fell on De La Vina the other day? Just 7-8 years ago that same tree (or the one next to it) dropped a giant limb that pancaked one and a half cars on that corner. Last August on the same block across the street this happened (attachment). This was at 4 in the afternoon on a calm day. I'm surprised this doesn't happen more. They are a beautiful tree but it seems that some preventative maintenance is in order.
