175 Trees Trimmed Along Ventura Boulevard on Monday and Tuesday

The Studio City Beautification Association is doing the work with help from the Neighborhood Council and Councilman Krekorian's office

About 175 trees are scheduled to be trimmed on Monday and Tuesday along Ventura Boulevard from Fulton to Lankershim—essentially running the length of Studio City along Ventura.

Expect traffic delays along this major route for the next two days.

The south side will be trimmed on May 7 and the north on May 8. 

The Bureau of Street Services, Urban Forestry Division, will be trimming 175 trees along Ventura Boulevard in a project funded by the , with additional help from the Studio City Neighborhood Council and Councilmember Paul Krekorian's office.  

No Parking signs will be posted during the trimming and will be removed as soon as the work is complete. 

Here's a map we created to tell people exactly where the trimming will take place:http://g.co/maps/ghmzg

Or rather, I should say thank you upfront to Studio City Beautification, and thank you SCNC for their support!

Tree trimming is best done NOT in Spring when birds, squirrels etc. are nesting. When will people learn to respect our wildlife friends...

There are no nests in any of these trees.

How about some of the trees in the residential neighborhoods that never seem to get the attention they need. I have been asking the city to trim "their trees" on Valley Spring Lane between Bakman and Fair Ave for the last 4 years. But all I get is "We will check it out".

The city "slugs" running this "horse-n-pony" show known as Lost Angeles voiced the same thing about overgrown trees in my area. And they added insult to their incompetent mismanagement leading to perpetual inaction. If I chose to trim the tree hanging into the street blocking a parking spot in front of my residence, I would need to pull a permit-- at my expense; or, I could hire a licensed tree trimmer and he could take care of all the details, including the permit, again at my expense. The catch phrase-- "We don't have the funds to trim the trees at this time." Another catch phrase came immediately to mind-- "Taxation Without Representation." Simple Jeffersonian solution-- "This tree is a documented traffic hazard." The tree was trimmed within 2 days. "Viva El Norte Hollywood."
