Long Beach trees
Five coral trees on Ocean Boulevard and Cherry Avenue are dying, with significant trunk and root decay, and are at risk of falling. These trees experienced limb failure over the summer at an increasing rate, and members of the public are often within the fall zone.
On Friday, August 5, the City of Long Beach will begin removing some dead and dying trees in the City’s parks that are increasingly prone to toppling over or limbs falling. The City must remove them to ensure the public’s safety and, consequently, support the growth of healthy trees.
