Only the Stump Remains

The mature oak tree that fell over a couple of weeks ago was first chopped up and then removed altogether.

Only the stump remains. It will be replaced by another tree in due time.

Sometimes the trunks of fallen city-owned trees have been recycled. An example: the wooden benches that grace the eastern banks of the Arroyo Seco.

I asked my go-to certified arborist in the Parks and Natural Resources Division of the Public Works Department what was to come of the fallen tree. She told me it would be turned into mulch, and that interested people can call her about it.

Here's her info:

I'm pleased to hear that. Pasadena seems to be placing it's felled trees next to San Pasqual Stables (I think thats Pasadena?). They had some felled pine that could be planked.

I'm glad the city will be able to replace the try. It was a beauty and will be missed.

Stumps? At least that's more than we have left on Colorado in the PH District.
