Pruning Project Generates Controversy
It’s unclear if this pruning job was the work of Caltrans or Southern California Edison, but the severe pruning this sycamore received has drawn concern from as far away as Malibu. Critics of the botched job have raised concerns that the tree is now at risk for collapse because only one side was cut, leaving the remains unbalanced. Photo by Bonnie MorganSource:
Thank you for bringing attention to this horrendous desecration of “Our Main Street.” It is terribly disappointing to work as hard as we do to communicate to Caltrans how they need to work in Topanga, to set up lines of communication and then have something like this take place. It’s heartbreaking! Thank you for taking the time to feature this abomination. You have given us the evidence we need to work to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
