- Aug 17, 2013What about other trees marked for removal? I worked at the Edendale Library book sale today, which was set up in front, on the Sunset Blvd. side. The two shade trees out front made it possible for the ELFs to have some shade and to protect the buyers from the heat of the sun. Why are these marked? They can't be that old or dangerous.Judy RaskinFrom: cp00733 <peterscp007@...>

Subject: [EchoElysianNCForum] Update on Ficus Trees Posted for removal
CD 13 had a meeting yesterday with Bureau of Street Services. We reviewed the original plans presented to the community and requested that the 4 Ficus on Sunset between Logan and Echo Park Ave be removed from the list. Those trees wil be trimmed and root pruned, and the tree wells enlarged. There is a small chance that once the pruning happens IF one of the trees on the North Side is compromised and considered unsafe, they may have to be removed at a later date. The one very large Ficus at McDuff in fron of Dr. Perez's office will remain posted. It was determined to be too large to safely root prune and not risk tipping over. It will remain posted. The other trees posted for removal in CD 13 are mostly the failing Chitalpas, the rogue Olives and Redbush, and one rogue Banana. Those are all part of the original plan and will be replaced with either Pistache or African Fern Pine. These plantings and removals along with the streetscape improvements will likely begin in January.
Any posted trees on the South of Sunset, east of EP Ave are in CD 1. So if you are filing protests please contact their office as well.
I personally witnessed the posting being removed from the Logan/EP/Sunset Ficus this morning.
