South City resident Marisol Ugas noticed the trees were coming down over at Alta Loma Park/ School and asked if anyone knew why. Because we have a great community of folks that know stuff, we once again put the question out to our neighbors on our FB and below are the responses. While we did check the district website, we did not find any direct information and appreciate our community at large filling in the blanks.
Julie Bettencourt Cliff I hope its just because they are not healthy and they will be replacing them.
Meg Simi They smell so I don’t mind lol
Kevin Maffei You mean all the Eucalyptus trees?
Kelly Hendrickson Whaaaaaat!!
Betty Karlegan Fowler I heard they are not healthy and with our potential heavy winds they could fall and harm someone. I’m sure they will be replaced.
Sarah Nicole Noooo whyyyyy those trees are like a staple to my childhood! From when we uses to ride bikes through the “orchards” lol
Angelique Presidente Because they are diseased
Glen Wandersee I have mixed emotions,yes the trees have various environmental hazards.Ive worked at Loma 19 years,oh well,i guess as long as the willow GLEN still stands,i cant complain too much.
Ricardo Duarte Are they being replaced????!!!!
Aida Wong Gamba They will be replaced with some kind of shrub tree – something that will provide sound barrier for homes without dropping too many leaves/nuts/branches on the cars below.
Anita Porpoise If they are the eucalyptus: 1) they are not native. 2) they have hollow roots. Years ago some fell in Burlingame, afterwards they found others were diseased and they were removed.
