Tree Streets defoliated

NO TREES HERE: Would hate to spoil the view of this building from Kavanaugh.

Tree Streets
, the Hillcrest Resident Association's tree-planting program along Kavanaugh Boulevard, will not get to plant trees in front of a vacant garage, the city has decided.

The owner of the garage, lawyer Hal Kemp, protested when he saw holes dug in the sidewalk in front of the garage for the trees, and asked the city to halt the planting. After some research, the city has decided that Tree Streets will have to apply for permits from now on to plant in a city right-of-way, City Manager Bruce Moore says. The city would "more than likely not approve" the permit at the garage location, Moore said, because of the placement in front of the building. The permit application would go to city forester Robbie Hudson.

The HRA-Hillcrest Merchants Association project has been planting trees along Kavanaugh for some time without permission; Moore said the city has even given the project money. No more.
