Trees are County’s; Will Address in October

Beach Foliage

Trees belong to County. It is settled. Last week there was discussion as to whether the trees growing on the beach side of the jetty belonged to City or County. Carol Baker, division chief, community and marketing services for Department of Beaches and Harbors said she would look into it and get back to Update. This she did.

“The trees are in an area maintained by our Department and are the result of windblown seeds,” wrote Baker. “We’ve included them in the Marina’s tree inventory and will address them — likely by pruning or removal — when the bird-nesting season is over in October, and we have environmental clearance to proceed.

“If there’s an obvious nuisance-level issue that arises between now and the end of nesting season, we’ll address it.”
