Another tree in Tenaya Park goes down on Friday, January 20, 2017

The single remaining stone pine on the southwest side of the Park fell on Friday afternoon, January 20, 2017.    Fortunately, no cars were parked in the West Sample cul-de-sac at the time.  The tree did take out a light pole which will have to be replaced.  TEI President Vern Grant and Secretary Paul Heath acted quickly and hired a tree removal service to take the tree and debris away.  The Park's electrician has been contacted about repairs to the light pole. 

Thanks to prudent management of TEI funds, there was enough in Park reserves to cover the unexpected cost of $4,900 to remove the tree.  Since stone pines are notorious for being top heavy with shallow root systems, the Board will discuss whether to remove the two remaining stone pines on the southeast side of the Park before they fall.
