"Along" or "In" the creek ?
I think some public entity keeps the creek clean in case of another massive rain by trimming and cutting out large plants and trees as well as blockages that might occur. Do you think it might have been a city or county worker ?
If not, did you report it to the police?

I can't help you on that, but I was surprised not to hear squawks from Palo Altans when all those trees and bushes were cut down alongside 101 and E. Bayshore Rd. Clearly, this is because of the highway widening/lane additions, but I saw a heckuva lot of greenery being removed one day as I drove on E. Bayshore recently...think of all the carbon dioxide that has been removed by those trees along the highway for all those years. I wonder if there will be room to add more greenery after all the construction is finished (I speak of Embarcadero Rd to San Antonio Rd) -- space between E Bayshore and 101.

Santa Clara Water District just removed some trees along Adobe Creek. It's their property; they can do whatever they want with it. The Water District's bond measure paid for the removals.
