Removal of Red Hill Ave Elm Trees Set for This Week

San Anselmo Elm Trees on a major thoroughfare will meet their demise this week.


The Elm trees on the Red Hill Avenue median are infected with Dutch Elm Disease and are slowly dying, according to San Anselmo Town Manager Debbie Stutsman, who wrote about the trees last week in her regular column on Patch.  

Five of the trees, which are marked with a red “x,” will be removed on Wednesday, Jan. 30 or Thursday, Jan. 31. Some of the trees are across from the Elan Health and Fitness Center. 

Stutsman said the town is working with a landscape architect and others to replant the median as the large trees die.

“The plan will include bringing water to the median to ensure that young trees planted get the proper water during the dry season. We are hopeful that we can find grants or other funding to help us with this project.”

If you’re interested in helping with the replanting project, contact Rick Franco at 258-4601 or rfranco@townofsananselmo.org.

What if we combined the Red Hill replanting with other median work and started raising $$$ as a community-tax funds, grants, crowdfunding?
