It would be nice (as I live on Olive Street) if those dead stonepines were removed asap! they have been dead all summer--what is taking so long? A fire on the Riviera would sweep down Anapamu like greased lightening if those dead trees were to catch fire. I'm not at all impressed by the city's care for the trees. They are never properly pruned, they are never watered (no way 12 a year…or even 4) and I walk that street daily. This year I have seen them watered once…a week ago.
Given the growing condition as Anapamu Street is constituted now, there are too many stonepines planted…and they are planted directly across from each other so they compete for resources directly. If the trees were spaced out and planted alternately across the street from each other instead of directly, they would grow to provide a canopy without as much competition. Half the number of trees with the same length of Anapamu Street covered.
It is also ridiculous to ask the neighbors to water….every drop of water they put onto the front of their property is ALREADY being used by the trees. Believe me, I owned a home in the 400 block of Anapamu and the tree took what it wanted and my plants/trees got the leftovers. I imagine in this drought, the trees are going for the sewers in a big way!
