I read an article the other day in the stanford daily and the head groundskeeper at
the farm didn't seem to be too concerned offer the situation....you can find the article by going to the stanford daily online....the groundskeeper is very knoweldgeable and freindly and would be receptive to your questions....should not be hard to contact....if you want an
experts advice....they give it freely and seem to enjoy doing so....apparently rain could have helped ease the predicament....but we haven't had much of that....

There is also a blight of some sort on our city owned trees. It looks like fall down my street as new young leaves covered in some disease or other cover the ground. This is about the third or fourth spring it has happened, but I don't think the city does anything about it. They do know it is happening because I called last year and asked them what was happening. They didn't seem too bothered.

Resident -- are you sure it's not just all the live oaks losing their leaves, as they always do at this time of year? Live oaks are evergreen, but like all evergreens they still shed their leaves once a year -- just in spring once their new growth starts, not in the fall.
