Los Robles is the name of the street. "Los robles" is also Spanish for "the oaks," which these obviously aren't. Maybe not so obviously. It was dark. I'm working on my dark photography. These are palmas--uh, palms.
I understand certain trees are protected in Pasadena. I've heard if you cut down a Live Oak, even if you planted it yourself, you're subject to legal action. Anybody know the answer? I couldn't come up with the search string that would tell me.
We have a Tree Protection Ordinance which isn't specific about which trees are protected, so maybe they're all protected. That's more trees than people. Our population is under 150,000, yet Hometown Pasadena estimates 205,000 trees in Pasadena. I know it's at least 205,001 by now because the book came out in 2006 and John and I have planted a Chinese Elm in our yard since then.
Palm trees are not indigenous to southern California. But I ramble on.
