Businesses finally win battle - sign-blocking ficus trees slated for removal over citizen outcry; Pasadena, CA; 4/29/09

City Council Authorizes Plan to Remove Ficus Tress Pasadena Now - Pasadena,CA,USA
The City Council Monday decided to go ahead with the original plan of cutting down ficus trees on Colorado Boulevard and replacing them with other tree varities, according to reports.
The council has held several meetings discussing the contentious council plan to remove 35 ficus trees along Colorado Boulevard between Los Robles Boulevard and Lake Avenue and planting gingkoes and palm trees in their place reportedly.
The discussions about the removal of ficus trees began in 1990s and were bolstered by city’s business owners who debate that the tree’s canopies block signs on the boulevard and the roots wreck sidewalks and plumbing, said authorities.
