Date: November 27, 2007 

The Public Landscape Division of the Community Maintenance Department will be removing the remaining 24 diseased Oleander (Nerium oleander) trees located on 27th Street between Pico Blvd. and Pearl Street due to Oleander Leaf Scorch (OLS), a lethal disease of Oleanders.   

The disease is caused by a tiny bacterium called Xylella fastidiosa which begins to yellow the leaves progressing to a scorching of leaf tips and eventual die-back of twigs and branches.  The disease carrying insect, “Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter” (Homalodisca coagulata), will spread OLS to adjacent plants with a single feeding visit, making this project a priority.  Presently, the only measures to control OLS are to do away with Oleanders that have definite symptoms.    

The removals will be done in approximately 14 days from the date of this notice.  The replacements will be planted shortly after the removals.  The trees will be physically posted on 11/28/07. 

As a continuation of the first phase of removals and replacements on 27th Street, the replacement species will be the Chinese Fringe Tree (Chionanthus retusus).  Residents with new street trees in front of their homes are encouraged to water them while they acclimate to their new environment.  The trees should be watered once a week during the cool winter season and twice a week during the summer season. 

For questions or concerns regarding this matter call Walt Warriner, Community Forest and Public Landscape Superintendent or Johnny Aguila, Community Forest Supervisor at (310) 458-8974.

Date: October 31, 2007 

The Community Maintenance Department, Public Landscape Division will be removing the following street trees. 

  • 830, 840, 833 (90% dead) Bay Street – Indian Laurel Fig (Ficus microcarpa ‘Nitida’).  Due to past root pruning, these 3 trees have reached the end of their useful life span.  The replacement species will be the Catalina ironwood (Lyonothamnus floribundus). 
  • 2320 Carlyle Avenue #3 and #5 - Canary Island Pines (Pinus canariensis).  Tree #3 is infested with pine bark beetle, evident by the dead top section.  To avoid the spread of the beetle to adjacent trees, this tree needs to be removed.  Tree #5 has an irregular lean in the direction of existing sidewalk pavers which indicate roots were once pruned for sidewalk repairs.  The replacement species will be the same. 
  • 433, 444, 522 21st Street – Canary Island Date Palms (Phoenix canariensis).  These palm trees are infected with a fatal and incurable disease called Fusarium Wilt (Fusarium oxysporum).  The replacements will be a palm species that is not susceptible to this disease.   
  • 260 15th Street #1 Deodar Cedar (Cedrus deodaraTree is dead.  The replacement species will be the same. 

  • 37 15th Street #1 Carob (Ceratonia siliqua).  A decay column has been detected on the trunk, and the canopy is unbalanced due to the loss of 2 large lateral limbs.  These two factors have created a structurally unstable condition for the tree. The replacement species will be Deodar Cedar (Cedrus deodara).   
  • 724 19th Street – Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica).  Tree is dead.  The replacement will be the same species. 

The work will begin in approximately 14 days from the date of this notice. 

The replacement trees will be planted in the early spring of 2008.

August 23, 2007 

A recent study of the Canary Island Date Palms (Phoenix canariensis) in Palisades Park has been completed with the determination that 44 dead and dying palms will require removal.  The primary disease that is killing off the palms is Fusarium Wilt of Canary Island Date Palm a fungus that is specific, to the Canary Island Date Palm.  It has been verified that other palm species may be susceptible to this fungus as well.   

There is no effective treatment for Fusarium.  Fungicides have been evaluated for their effectiveness, but none have been successful.  Disease management is based solely on prevention and sanitation.  In order to reduce the potential for the further spread of this fungus the infected trees will be removed and replaced with a different palm species.   

A detailed analysis of this removal project was submitted on August 14, 2007 to the City Council.  The complete Council Information Item can be found on the City’s Web Site at http://www.smgov.net/cityclerk/council/information_items.htm . 

The work will begin approximately fourteen days from the date of this notice.  The replacement trees will be planted as part of the City’s Community Forest Renewal Program in the winter of 2007 / 2008. 

Questions or concerns regarding this matter may be directed to Walt Warriner, Community Forest & Public Landscape Superintendent or Johnny Aguila, Community Forest Supervisor at (310) 458-8974.  E-mail: walter.warriner@smgov.ne

Date: May 9, 2007 

The Community and Cultural Services Department, Open Space Management Division will be removing the Blue Gum Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) located in the street right-of-way adjacent to 430 7th Street.   

Several years ago the roots of the subject tree were pruned as part of a sidewalk repair program.  Over time, these severed roots suffered a natural decline in their structural strength as a result of the necessary pruning.  As the severed roots began to decay they also became infected with a soil borne fungus (Laetiporus sulphureus) that enters the tree through the wounds and exacerbates the decay process.  The fungus is not visible until the yellow conks (fruiting bodies of fungal growth) begin to bloom and are visible on the exterior of the trunk. Once these yellow conks appear this indicates that the fungus is well established and the tree has a significant amount of internal decay.  Experience with the Eucalyptus species has shown that when these conditions exist, the tree’s structural strength has become compromised and has a high potential for failure.   Based on these factors the Community Forester has determined that this tree should be removed.  

The removal will take place in approximately fourteen (14) days from the date of this notice.  The replacement species will be the Brisbane Box (Lophostemon confertus).   It will be planted by the end of June 2007.  

For questions or concerns regarding this matter call Walt Warriner, Community Forest and Public Landscape Superintendent or Johnny Aguila, Community Forest Supervisor at (310) 458-8974.

Subject: Emergency Tree Removals: 17th St. & Alta Ave. 

On Monday (May 7th) Community Forest Operations will be doing emergency tree removals from 303 17th Street (Georgina Ave side) and 1920 Alta Ave.    

This week, during a recent routine inspection of the area, the City Arborist determined that the subject pine trees had died suddenly as a result of infestation from pine bark beetles.  Unfortunately, pine trees that are under any type of stress (i.e. drought, mechanical injury, air pollutants, extreme temperatures, etc.) are subject to infestation by pine bark beetles.  The subject trees were found to be infested with two different kinds of aggressive bark beetles that also have the ability to attack healthy trees if the infested trees are not removed in a timely manner.  An emergency removal of these infested trees is necessary to reduce the potential spread of further insect infestation to the healthy stand of pine trees that are in the immediate vicinity.  

The tree on Alta will be replaced with a Canary Island Pine (Pinus canariensis) and the tree on 17th Street will be replaced with a Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis). 

If you have any questions regarding this matter please don’t hesitate to contact me either by e-mail or on my cell at (310) 925 – 9963.

The Community and Cultural Services Department, Open Space Management Division will be removing a New Zealand Christmas Tree (Metrosideros excelsus) that is located at the east entrance to the Civic Center Parking Lot off of Civic Center Drive. 

This tree will need to be removed in order to accommodate a requirement by the Los Angeles County Flood Control District to install a manhole over an existing 120” diameter storm drain line that runs underneath the existing tree.  The dedicated location for the manhole is just south of the entry drive from 4th street and its construction will cause extensive damage to the root system of the tree and most likely result in its demise.  Due to existing infrastructure both above and below ground, relocation of the existing tree is cost prohibitive.  Since time is of the essence, the most effective way to complete this project in a timely and cost effective manner is to remove and replace the existing tree. 

The tree will be removed at the commencement of the project and the replacement tree will be a 60” box sized New Zealand Christmas Tree (Metrosideros excelsus), which will be planted at the completion of the project.  The cost for the replacement tree will be incorporated into the cost of the project. 

For questions or concerns regarding this matter call Walt Warriner, Community Forest and Public Landscape Superintendent or Johnny Aguila, Community Forest Supervisor at (310) 458-8974.  E-mail: walter.warriner@smgov.net 


 

Date: April 19, 2007 

The Community and Cultural Services Department, Open Space Management Division has permitted the Southern California Edison Company to remove thirteen (13) Mexican Fan Palms (Washingtonia robusta) located in the City street right-of-way adjacent to 1644 Cloverfield Blvd., Olympic Blvd. side (@ Ralph’s).  Please see special comments below. 

These palm trees have begun to encroach on the Edison Co. power lines which are high voltage.  The palms must be removed to prevent their eventual contact with the high voltage lines.  This will prevent potential power outages during adverse conditions such as Santa Ana winds or stormy conditions.  The trees will be removed in approximately fourteen (14)  days from the date of this notice.   

The replacement trees will be the Purple Orchid Tree (Bauhinia variegata), which can be safely maintained under the power lines. 

For questions or concerns regarding this matter call Walt Warriner, Community Forest and Public Landscape Superintendent or Johnny Aguila, Community Forest Supervisor at (310) 458-8974.

************** Note *************
Some background in regards to the latest tree removals notice where the City of Santa Monica is permitting Southern California Edison to remove 13 Mexican Fan palms adjacent to Ralph’s market
(1644 Cloverfield Blvd., Olympic Blvd. side). 

Before the City of Santa Monica developed the Community Forest Management Plan, where it requires planting the right tree species for the existing situation,  the developer for Ralph’s planted these 13 palm trees without consent from the City in the early 1990’s. 

  As a result, the S.C. Edison Co. has notified the City that the palms have now reached a height that is within the S.C. Edison Co’s power line clearance requirement of 12 feet.  Their clearance requirement overrides the state law clearance requirement given that this transmission circuit conducts 66,000 volts from substation to substation.  In the event any of these palms/fronds would cause a power outage at this location, a major interruption of multiple circuits would occur in  this commercial/residential area disturbing thousands of customers.   

In collaboration with the Edison Co., they will pay for the cost of the palm removals and the City of Santa Monica will pay for the cost of the tree replacements.   

With the Community Forest Management Plan in effect the City’s pro active position in planting the right tree in the right place will prevent these types of situations in the future.     


 

Date:  April 12, 2007
