Last year I posted a lovely photo of the West Mission street jacaranda trees on EdHat, and encouraged people to write to the City and ask that they not be destroyed. They had been posted for removal, and soon the signs were taken down and I thought it was an example of citizen justice.
Now, this week they were all chopped off to stumps. In bird nesting season, in blooming season, a sad example of the government having a plan and sticking to it.
Street trees are a big part of what makes our city beautiful, and so many are suffering through drought times, yet the City has no doubt some bicycle lane agenda that involves widening the street there.
