A tree falls in Leucadia... and a memorial springs up
"Say what you want about Leucadians but the folks who live in the small beach community nestled between Interstate 5 and the Pacific Ocean definitely love their trees.
After an old Torrey Pine was cut down last week on a vacant lot on Orpheus Avenue an impromptu shrine memorializing it quickly appeared.
Dozens of flowers were placed in front of the property which sits just south of Leucadia Boulevard and several signs and posters were affixed to the chain link fence.
Messages ranged from proclamations of love for the tree as well as words of - well, not love - for the property owners."
