Redwood trees in Fairfield a hazard

By From page A8 | June 02, 2014

The California redwood trees are a tourist sensation up and down the California coastline.

Many of us have even driven our cars through the foot of such a gigantic wonder. Driving your car through a redwood tree is a life experience for all visitors to California. It is a sensation we will all remember for the rest of our lives.

Growing redwood trees within the Fairfield city limits might not be a wise thing. When a mature redwood tree collapses (eventually they will fall down), within the Fairfield city limits, it might cost human lives and a tremendous amount of damage.

Perhaps the City Council will pay for the removal of all redwood trees located within the city limit?

    Did a redwood collapse when u drove thru it? Say, just like trees, inevitably I will fall into dust. To make sure that doesnt happen while I am driving (thru a redwood) I will go to the beach and bury myself in the sand, preparing for eternity.

    How about letting the tree die first? And then if it's a City tree. Any dead redwoods in town? I know of one on Empire Street downtown. But it's not a City tree.

    No trees, only manicured lawns allowed.

    Perhaps the council will take up a "Redwood tree abatement ordinance".

    The Redwoods that were planted along East Atlantic in Fairfield have torn up the sidewalk, making walking there awful. They are messy trees that belong in a forest, not within city limits. The city must have gotten a good deal on them all those years ago...... I hate those trees.

    But the good news is with that GEICO commercial if the tree does fall we will hear it (a little help)
