  1. Why would you want to point that out.


    Now you know the City will go out and cut it down.

  2. Are you sure it isn't a rogue tree. That's what Chris Hazeltine called the mulch on Vulcan.

  3. That isn't a tree, it's a weed. Typical of what the city permits and endorses for Leucadia.
    Support the streetscape.

  4. They're called "Volunteers" not renegades.

    Never cut down a volunteer.

  6. That is a full on tree. I was gonna nab it but I waited too long and it's over 6' tall now. Sure wants to live! I think it's of the acacia variety that blooms yellow.

  7. I suggest the City start a youth brigade of lil' Paul Bunyons. They could spend Saturday's mowing down little trees before the could become pesky tall green things that drop leaves and limbs. It seems like a natural for Danny to lead. They would make him so proud.

  8. Whaaat? Sidewalks in Leucadia...isn't this a redevelopment area cause of the dirt and dust? Can life spring from the primordial mix without a blessing from Pope Jerry? Surely tis a miracle my wee one, the NCTD gods have pissed on our drought. Praise Be To Jerabomb.

  9. That's all the streetscape Leucadia gets.
    David Letterman is a pervert.

  10. It's an Albizia tree. I have a couple of them in my yard - they're great shade/canopy trees and have cool looking flowers that the bees and humming birds are crazy about. Here's a link to the Wikipedia entry: Albizia tree

  12. Letterman a pervert? Do you think making a woman have a baby who has been raped isn't perveted, like Sarah Palin suggested? Or how about showing off a deformed infant to attract voters isn't fundamentally sick, something Palin did all during the campaign.

  13. I was at the post office today and noticed, sadly, the tree has been cut down. Bummer. I had feeling that the city wouldn't let it stay.
