Did anyone see someone cutting branches off the Oak Trees near the south entry to The Villas of Almaden over the weekend of the 1st & 2nd of March? Parks employee, Louie Anaya, discovered a large limb had been removed on Monday. He thinks it may have happened over the weekend. The fact that the cut looks like it was done professionally and that the limb was taken, suggests that it was being taken for a purpose other than just someone doing some pruning for the benefit of the tree. Now that the trees have been nicely pruned by PRNS, the beautiful trunks are very visible and are unfortunately now exposed. We are very concerned that this might happen again.
If you see any unauthorized person removing tree branches, other than PRNS employees, could you please contact the Martin-Fontana Parks Association with the information? Reporting it will give us a better idea of when it might have been done. We can be contacted via email at SaveOurParkTrees@gmail.com. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

No. Sorry to disappoint you, they are the outline of 7 Native Plant Islands proposed for the empty area near the Heritage Tree Grove plaque.
Thanks so much for all those long hours spent in watering trees when you could have been doing something else. If it wasn’t for each one of you, taking the time, all those newly planted trees wouldn’t survive. Your community appreciates you.
