A friend told me the city of Burlingame has recently hired a Professional Arborist to "Oversee/Manage" the Beautiful Trees of Burlingame.
I am looking forward to the Official Recreation & Park Department Announcement.


Since Disco is retiring this seems like an obvious next move.

Mr. Disco "retired" quite a while ago...he's just physically leaving.


That really is a beautiful photo! Thanks.


I have met Mr. Disco a few times. He seemed like a very Jolly Fellow.
I am sorry to learn he has retired but Happy he survived the Recreation and Park Dept.
I am sure there will be an appropriate replacement.
Master's Degree in "something."
I bet the Salary is Awesome....
"Our Fair City" is Awesome too.

Let’s hope that the our city government has the common sense (with the emphasis on “common”) to hire a trans person from the BIPOC community for this landscaping job to help balance the work force for these new times. We have to accept that it will cost a bit to get management quality but it shouldn’t be that much more then the current salary and compensation – see transparentcalifornia.com for current specific salaries.

MBGA - I like the new picture!


That is a very interesting post MBGA.
What does BIPOC mean?


BIPOC = Black, Indigenous, and People of Color

WTF, people -- the post is about a couple of beautiful trees. Knock it off.


Easy HMB.
I understand your POV. I am confused though.
We all may have learned something here today.
One insight being that you HMB have an issue with BIPOC people.
I hope not.


I think you are off-base and may be confusing HMB with MBGA although I don't think either have any issues with anyone--city salaries maybe, but people? Nah

HMB is correct, we are far afield of the two beautiful trees in the Baywood district. Back on track, please?


Truth be known, I hate red leaves.


Let's not have BV become another Nextdoor, please!

I only defined BIPOC because hollyrolller asked. Maybe I should have replied, "Google it." Sheesh...


What is "Nextdoor" HMB?
Other than that all the trees in Burlingame look great. The Tree Dept. provides a very Professional Benefit for "Our Fair City." Red Leaves or No Leaves the Trees in this Town are outstanding!


Google it.


Correction. This post is about two trees and a stump.

Who will speak for the poor stump?
what happened to that "Tom the Tree" stump, piece of wood?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

Poor Tom the Tree took his place in the Burlingame-Hillsborough History Museum only to come down with a bug (or bugs, I should say). He has gone to his final resting place in the woodchips in the sky. RIP, Tom!
