Letter: Eucalyptus trees on El Camino
August 16, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

I must admit that the eucalyptus trees along El Camino Real are still there (“ECR project faces tree concern” in the Aug. 13 edition of the Daily Journal). Eucalyptus trees can be dangerous trees. They grow fast and the wood is brittle. They have a habit of dropping branches. Not twigs, but major limbs. Do we have to wait for a branch to fall on a car and injure or kill someone?

Palo Alto has started removing large eucalyptus trees next to sidewalks for just this reason.

Yes, the trees add character to El Camino Real, but are they worth risking life and limb over?
