Trees Ruin Burlingame Beauty

Where are the tree huggers to clean up our city streets covered in Eucalyptus tree garbage. $100,000 minimum damage.


Have the authorities published which trees are included in the 85 they want to get rid of?
All those eucs are tagged with little metal stamped number plates. Can we learn the numbers?


The metal tags represent each tree that has been "evaluated" for Root, Crown, and overall safety related to the "micro environment" the tree grows in.
There should be "Public Record."
City, County, State. Just ask.
Or contact a City of Burlingame Elder.
Just Ask.


I hear the figure of 85 trees is not a firm thing yet. As noted last year there are about 500 EUCs on ECR now which is down quite a bit from their peak. But nothing has really been decided yet.

Yes, and Holly is right...it's a tag for inventory, and location.


Thank you Jennifer.


Get to the root of the problem to improve the design and road safety by requesting the State to turn the ECR street over to the communities? It is a local street not a State Highway as I understand it.


No. It's a state highway - CA 82.


State Hwy. I thought it was CA 85.


Like Big Joe Biden says, come on man.
If the tree was a nuisance in your backyard you would want it removed, eh?
