Sonoma Goes After Eucalyptus Trees
Looks like Sonoma County is having some problems with eucalyptus trees that line roads, just like we're having with the trees between Eureka and Arcata. Some homeowners are fighting with the county over whose responsibility it is to cut them down.
I don't feel so paranoid now. I'd remarked elsewhere that it made me nervous driving on the 101 safety corridor when a strong wind was blowing. I worried that a tree, or maybe a branch, might fall down. Apparently, at least one person has been killed by a falling eucalyptus tree in Sonoma County, according to the article.
Goes to show: Just because you're paranoid...
I, for one, don't have any problem with removal of the eucalyptus trees alongside the 101 safety corridor. That Press- Democrat article solidifies my feelings.
