Palm trees on Magnolia Ave look
terrible and should also be cut
down before the next windstorm
leaves a mess that took the city
2 weeks before our streets were
cleaned up from 3 years of not
being pruned.

I lived here when they were planted

There are some palm trees nearby these that were not much taller than me growing up. Now they are huge.
They've grown into wind and fire dangers. It didn't help that they were not kept trimmed.

Still, since they grew up with me, I'm a little sorry to see them go.
