during extreem drought at the time he was also pouring concentrated fertilizer on the trees. Thus killing them directly.
I both wrote and called the palo Alto arborist to notify them of this. I also called the property manager of the site.
She stated the site was due for "RE-PURPOSING' i said redevelopment? Yes she said. There for all the trees were coming down anyway.
As a citizen and property owner I nor my neighbors are allowed to remove or neglect any tree on our property of a significant size....to remodel, build a home or re landscape!!! Why are developers allowed to remove , kill trees of this significant size with out penalty like the rest of the community? Does anyone else see the strong allegiance the planning department and now the arborists have with their pockets being possibly lined with contributions from developer who are changing the core of the environment off our community with out regard for the the environmental impact?
