Alice Newton of Menlo Park sent us this picture she took Aug. 24 of Jil Antonio of Brothers Services (Redwood City) cutting a top branch from a live oak tree across the street from Ms. Newton's house in the 1000 block of Del Norte Avenue.
The tree had been leaning lower and lower over Del Norte Avenue and scaring many people for years, she says.
"They did a superb job of taking down this huge tree, cleaning up, and planting the new one," she says.
A replacement live oak was planted Aug. 25 near where the workers ground out the old stump, she says.
