Subject: Tree Maintenance - Hwy 101
Larry asked that I update you on our efforts to complete the tree maintenance project on North Coast Highway 101.
As you will remember, we did an extensive inspection of the trees in the corridor. We had three certified arborists inspect the trees. It was determined that 11 of the trees should be removed and the remaining should be pruned. The removals will begin next Tuesday, March 31.
We have kept our community groups (Leucadia 101 Main Street Association, Leucadia Town Council & DEMA) updated on our project and have informed them that we will begin our last push to complete the maintenance work in the corridor next week. We will prune the trees in the median and remove the 11 bad trees. We will also finish the pruning on the east side of 101 south of Leucadia Blvd.
As it relates to the replanting trees, we are coordinating with the Streetscape Project and will replant trees as part of that improvement.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.

Is it worth a tree to print me? P
