  1. Voted no on this and hate it completely. waste of money. If there isn’t enough room on a sidewalk, then a tree doesn’t belong there. The city fixes an uneven sidewalk caused by roots, guess what, in a few years the sidewalk will need fixing again. And pruning probably needs to be done annually if it’s a fast growing tree. And then there’s the city workers who get paid to drive around and survey the streets. I say allow property owners to cut down the tree or SF can pick some of the more scenic spots/older trees and maintain them only. They don’t even have time to maintain the trees in the park, why would the city want to take on the responsibility for maintaining trees on the street?

    I see a bunch of trees planted in my neighborhood but because of the strong winds here, most of them have grown up slanted. It’s very easy to drop a young tree in the ground but no one ever thinks about whether it’s a good idea…Friends of the urban forest

    I’m all for planting trees – I have a total of 11 trees (mostly fruit trees) in my backyard. Even then I’m considerate of my neighbors and keep the trees under 10 ft tall. I hate it when people leave their trees unchecked – it shades other people’s property and blocks views.
