eucalyptus trees at Eleanor Pardy Park - danger to the playground area?

Original post made by crescent park resident, Crescent Park, on Mar 9, 2010

Just read that the Eleanor Pardy Park's Eucalyptus Trees are in danger of falling down or fallen branches are in danger of hurting our citizens.

Can anyone fill me on the town meeting about removing the trees?

My vote... move the play structures - not the trees!

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.
