Many months ago the City of Santa Barbara carried out their threatened deadly intent, and cut down to stumps the beautiful jacaranda trees at the corner of Mission and Modoc.
But as you can see they never ground out the stumps, and while they did kill a few that are now just ugly sawed off stumps the rest are making a valiant effort to grow back.
I can’t help but think of this as just another visual incidence of mismanagement of our city by Government. Who did this serve? Street trees are essential to the beauty of this city, I miss the beauty that was there before.
