Will Rogers Timber! A City Council majority has voted to cut down 43 mature trees at the south end of Brand Boulevard. They'll be replaced by palm trees and crepe myrtle trees. The annihilation exceeded even the city staff's request and will cost $41,000 more than the least disruptive alternative proposed. It also reiterates the continuing message that quality-of-life issues for those living south of City Hall are of much less concern to the council than similar concerns in other areas.

The city celebrated Arbor Day with a special ceremony at the Glendale Civic Auditorium Tuesday, during which county officials recognized Glendale's efforts at maintaining and expanding its urban forest. "I can't think of a better way to recognize the city's 100th anniversary than to recognize our citizen trees, some of whom witnessed the city's formation," said Daniel Hargrove, the city's asst. maintenance services administrator and guest speaker at the annual Arbor Day celebration.

We were pleased to read the letter by Margaret Snyder ("Death sentence on trees doesn't serve city," Aug. 29) regarding the city's decision to cut down all the old-growth carob trees in Glendale. Like her, we feel this decision is shortsighted and ill-advised. We moved to our home on Arden Avenue 28 years ago for several reasons, not the least of which was the beautiful canopy of large carob trees that stretched across the street. The neighboring streets, Burchett, Beulah and Patterson, shared the same warm, inviting ambience and offered welcome shade in the hot summer months.

Joyce Rudolph The past sprouted new growth for the future when Glendale Beautiful sponsored its 54th annual Arbor Day Program on Tuesday at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. Family and friends remembered loved ones, some with historical ties to Glendale, by purchasing trees from the organization, said Gladys Wymore, Arbor Day chairwoman. Trees donated to the community will be planted at city parks and libraries. Stewart Nixon purchased a tree in memory of his grandfather, Homer A. Bogue, a medical doctor who was a co-owner of Casa Adobe de San Rafael in 1894 and 1895.

Dave Weaver As a city awarded the distinction of being a Tree City USA for 15 consecutive years, we pride ourselves for our successful efforts at maintaining a healthy, safe and aesthetically pleasing urban forest. Unfortunately, trees, like all living things, have a defined life span, often shortened by adverse environmental conditions including disease and pests. Carob trees are prone to heartwood and crown rot, which are often not apparent on the exterior surface.

Volunteering good, hope it?s legitimate I read that some of our city employees recently volunteered to trim the city Christmas tree (?The fir rises at City Hall,? Friday). I really appreciate people who volunteered their time, money and service to the community. But I also read in the press that in the city of Los Angeles there is a big scandal going on with the city volunteers. The city employees were still being paid their regular salaries when they took time off to volunteer.
