West Coast Arbors, a private tree removal service hired by the city of Lodi, worked along Lower Sacramento Road on Friday to remove several more than 20-year-old Raywood ash trees.

The Lodi City Council voted to remove the trees in 2010, when it was discovered the roots were damaging streets and storm drains.

    Why didn't someone with the City of Lodi do a little research on these ash trees? With the hundreds of thousands of dollars the CoL spends on consultants I'm sure a $1K fee to an arborist would have prevented this cost and the damage to the street.

    As I drove pass Lower Sac. on Saturday morning I couldn`t help but notice the trees have been pruned and will grow again. Is it the cities intention to remove the stump and roots that are creating mini speed bumps on Lower Sac. Pruning can only mean that the trees will come back and grow stronger that ever.
