Tree clean up begins on 101

ENCINITAS — Beginning Nov. 18, the city of Encinitas is scheduled to prune approximately 70 trees and remove three dead trees located along the city’s section of Highway 101 in Leucadia between Encinitas Boulevard and La Costa Avenue.

City crews will be trimming trees, removing one dead tree and two trees with advanced internal decay and structural deficiencies, and potentially removing an additional three trees (upon further inspection) that have been identified as possible imminent public safety concerns. The city’s Urban Forestry Advisory Committee is scheduled to review and approve the city’s plans during a special meeting in November. Trimming and removal work is expected to be completed by Jan. 1, 2020.
