Getting Ready for Greenway Tree Planting

Story and photos by Bonnee Waldstein

Workers from the Capax company, contractors with the Department of Public Works, worked on clearing around 20 failing trees from the future Glen Park Greenway. Today they were behind St. John School, between Chilton and Burnside Avenues.


The “fennel forest” had been cleared earlier.

The workers were on deadline, needing to complete the job before the December 9 tree planting of 24 trees, many of them coast live oaks, along the Greenway.

Still to be removed are two leaning trees that are threatening a nearby house, on its right side in the photo.

City Agency Hearings + Sheehy Legislation

Nothing to report for Glen Park and not much elsewhere either, thanks to the holiday next week.

The SFMTA Board of Directors will meet Tuesday, November 21, 1 p.m. in City Hall, room 400. See full agenda here and read a proposal to amend their advertising policy to prohibit ads for cannabis products. You’ll no doubt know from reading The San Francisco Chronicle that the Board of Supervisors has delayed making rules around where cannabis shops can be located. The Winter of Paranoia setting in after the Summer of Love, I guess.
