Whenever construction of a new building or home is proposed in town, the issue of how many trees might be impacted or displaced comes up in due course.
Los Gatos has a tree care ordinance designed to protect the 20,000-plus trees on town-owned property, along with the thousands more that are located on private property.
But members of the Los Gatos Parks Commission are concerned that the tree protection rules are not always followed.
