More Leucadia Big Trees to be Removed
All of the big trees in the center median in front of Scott's Automotive are posted for removal. As you can see from this photo the city has not been trimming branches or taking care of these trees so they look a bit raggedy (the one in the center looks pretty good). The city says it is going to plant replacement trees but nobody can tell you when or what kinds of trees. The iconic Leucadia Hwy 101 tree canopy is going to completely gone soon. *sigh*
I heard that the big Torrey Pines in front of the Cardiff library are getting cut down this week. Efforts to save them from disease didn't pan out.*
*Correction: the Cardiff library Torrey Pines were not diseased, their roots had been cut when the library was built which led to their doom. I also hear that new trees will not be planted. Bummer.
