The Los Angeles Fire Department has hired a contractor to trim trees along Beverly Glen. The scheduled times and a description follows.
Your Traffic Committee Chair has discussed the impact on traffic and LAFD will be asking the contractor to do work on weekends on our side whenever possible, cialis generic and not to set up in the morning until after 10 am, to avoid disrupting the morning commute. We believe they will make best efforts to keep traffic flowing when at all possible.
The planned segments for work (approx 2 days each) are as follows:
1. Parkwood to Greendale
2. Greendale to Hollybrush
3. Hollybrush to Fernbush
4. Fernbush to Crater
5. Crater to Caribou
6. Caribou to Seabury
7. Seabury to Ravenwood
8. Ravenwood to Nicada
9. Nicada to Beverly Glen Circle
10. Beverly Glen Circle to Mulholland
11. Sunset to Parkwood (fit in as traffic allows)
The trimming will be raising canopy up to 14 feet and in some places bringing the canopy back in places. There will be lots of raising of small branches and removal of dead wood. There will also be trimming back of hedges and other thick vegetation that extends into the roadway (e.g., ficus hedges, bamboo, etc.). The Fire Department has made every effort to accommodate protected tree species (e.g., oaks and sycamores) while cleaning up hazardous situations such as dead wood and peeling bark on eucalyptus trees. Volunteers from Residents of Beverly Glen have been working very closely with the Brush Clearance Unit to protect our beautiful tree canopy where possible.
