A resident taking a walk in the Huntington Palisades on November 25 alerted Cindy Kirven that large trees along the street parkway were being removed.
Kirven, who is the co-president of the Pacific Palisades Community Council Forestry, went to the site at the intersection of Corona Del Mar and Altata Drive.
“Huge old eucalyptus street trees were being removed,” Kirven told CTN. “There were no permits pulled.”
Another resident, who was with Kirven called 911. Police responded and tree removal of healthy trees was stopped.
“Palisades Forestry will be reporting this to the Urban Forestry division at Bureau of Street Services, Monday,” Kirven said, and added that trees on either side, also large eucalyptus were beautiful.
