If city wants to save trees, then it can pay
I have followed the tree trimming issue and I’m sorry that this well-intentioned ordinance has taken a bad direction (“City looks to close tree fine issues,” Thursday). I do agree that the imposition of huge fines should have been reviewed by senior staff members before they were imposed.
Since it appears that the city may have difficulty with the explanation or enforcement of this ordinance, I would simply suggest that all Glendale residents refrain from the trimming or removal of any trees on their property. Why should any property owner run the risk of being fined by the city? If the city feels strongly about trees, then the city should take all responsibility for their care and maintenance.
