Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: Those Trees Didn't Count

Photo: Diane Edwardson, November 1, 2007.  None of those trees on the Allesandro Street frontage counted toward the tree replacement ratios in the 60 native and significant trees to be removed in the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract controversial 16-lot subdivision, approved in 2009.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Trivia: in the 2007 photo and as late as early 2011, what's noted in the first photo as "Sunflower Ave" is now "Rosebud Ave."  When this changed in 2011, we should have taken it as a sign that someone was getting ready to build.
