Don't look if you can't. Here are some views of two junipers that may be cut down tomorrow. Portraits of two trees on Tuesday. They have graced the 1600 block of Morton Ave. for 50 to 75 years. Despite the fact that a mature tree adds at least $10,000 to a property (according to Donna Barstow, who emailed Chicken Corner), the new landlord of this olive green bungalow court plans to have the junipers cut down. Why? Why is the question.

Several years ago mature trees were estimated at adding $10,000 each valuation to a property. In LA that's probably much higher. Retarded landlord is throwing money down the drain. AND: if he or she just wants them trimmed, either the city or DWP will send out CERTIFIED arborists on request, but you have to ask for certified, or you'll get a hatchet job (if the trees are in the median or come anywhere near certain wires).
That's more than we knew at Chicken Corner.
