In a Los Angeles Times article dated June 22, 2016 and titled, “26 million trees have died in the Sierra since October, raising fire risk” federal officials estimate the loss of trees since 2010 at 66 million due to drought conditions. Unfortunately, this Saturday, we can add one more to that list. The very large eucalyptus tree on Adams Avenue and B Street, across from Murrieta Elementary School, will be removed. This past Wednesday, a very large limb from the tree dropped. Staff and our contracted arborist believe that the sudden falling of limbs is due to the extended drought. A healthy eucalyptus tree suffering from long-term lack of water may suddenly drop one or more of its branches to allow the remaining braches and trunk to have more moisture. This, coupled with the fact that there is one main and three off-shoot trunks supporting the canopy, means that the tree may very well drop additional branches. With the elementary school foot traffic and a daycare center located nearby, staff does not wish to take any chances of a branch falling on someone. With that, West Coast Arborist will be removing the tree this Saturday morning. The removal process will take approximately two hours. Please contact the Community Services Department at (951) 304-PARK (7275) should you have any questions.
