For those willing to read one more resolution for tree management in Bluebird Canyon, here is my suggestion; replace the Eucalyptus with fruit-bearing, fire-tolerant trees. Remove the Eucalyptus trees and reduce the tree to aromatic firewood, stack dry and distribute the wood among residents in the neighborhood. Doing so will eliminate the chip-and-haul fee charged by tree services. Make a community project out of planting, watering, caring, and harvesting these trees, share the fruit among residents. To help with soil conditioning, planting, and community building contact the Transition Laguna Garden Group for details. www.transitionlaguna.org.
