Arcadia : Holly Oak Trees Removed

September 11, 1986

Pedestrians on the west side of Baldwin Avenue between Duarte Road and Camino Real Avenue in Arcadia who have suffered the problems associated with the nesting of birds in holly oak trees have found some relief since removal of those trees, which will be replaced by ficus trees.

The holly oaks have been a problem since 1978, when the city removed 72 of them at the request of the West Arcadia Business and Professional Assn. The remaining 33 trees were removed recently by Golden West Properties, current owner of the adjacent property, which plans a major redevelopment of its shopping complex. A 62,000-square-foot supermarket is under construction and is scheduled for completion in November.
