Notice of Upcoming Tree Removal on Camino Alto
Posted Date: 6/30/2014
Diseased Monterrey Pines on Camino AltoThe City of Mill Valley would like to announce the upcoming removal of several diseased and dying trees located on the east side of Camino Alto fronting The Redwoods buildings. The tree removal is necessary for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists and to protect the health of nearby trees. The project is also in conjunction with the pedestrian and bicycle improvement project that will take place this summer along Camino Alto Avenue, at the intersections of Miller Avenue/Camino Alto and at Miller Avenue/Almonte Boulevard. The tree removal work will take place from July 7 to August 1, 2014.

The trees slated for removal include eight diseased Monterrey Pine trees and one Acacia tree. The Monterrey Pines are infected with pitch canker fungus, a disease that causes die-back of individual branches leading to a decline of tree health and premature death. The City will replace the pines with native tree species at the end of construction in September 2014.

Work crews will close the sidewalk on the east side of Camino Alto between Miller Avenue and Sycamore Avenue during tree removal. Work crews will provide temporary, accessible paths in these locations. Parking will be temporarily restricted in specific areas of work. Construction will not affect emergency vehicles at any time.

We appreciate your patience while we work on this important project. If you have any questions or required specific assistance, please contact Construction Manager, Justin Seufert on the project phone line at (415) 306-6456.
