Historic trees cut down on Bernal Avenue by fairgrounds Around Town, posted by Disappointed, a resident of the Vintage Hills Elementary School neighborhood, on Jul 29, 2010 at 12:47 pm
I was horrified to see a tree crew cutting down historic walnut trees along the fence outside the fairgrounds along Bernal Avenue. I've lived in Pleasanton for 51 years and they were there when I was a kid. At least three were already cut down with huge stumps littering the ground.
Does anyone know why? I called and left a message at the city offices but haven't heard back yet.
What a shame since Bernal is a major gateway in and out of our City and the tree lined streets are so beautiful. There must be an awful good reason, but I'd like to hear it.

One walnut tree is being removed, it was dying and unsafe. It will be replaced by a California Sycamore.
I have asked about the trees on the other side of Bernal that were removed during the development of the Bernal property. City council promised the community that they would be replaced immediately but after more than five years still have not been replaced. I agree the gateway those trees create is important.
