Nearly two dozen Monterey Cypress trees that had long shaded Vista Del Mar Drive were removed Monday because they were a fire hazard, city officials said.

"The ones they are removing are dead, stone dead and have been for years," said Daryl Wagar, city parks supervisor.

Wagar said the half-century-old trees created a potential fire problem and removal was long overdue.

Workers removed the trees along a mile-long stretch of the street.

Wagar said residents planted the trees.
