The stone pine trees around the children's play area in Mitchell Park were removed last Summer because they were rotting out and deemed dangerous. They have now been replaced with a selection of different trees.

Trees like people have finite lives, perhaps this is the time to remove some if not all the eucalyptus trees in Pardee park.

Luckily for the City, south Palo Alto residents did not protect the removal of those majestic stone pine trees, we were smart enough to realize their danger and embrace the new plantings.
