|Coto de Caza, CA- Who woulda thought this grand old 200 year old giant oak tree would bring out the very worst in people running Coto de Caza and it's local golf course? Pretty sad if you ask me. Coto de Caza Resident fighting his HOA, property management company, the OCFA and the Coto de Caza golf club over the SummerHill Grand Old Oak Tree.
|Even though the HOA is spending over $1.5 million/year in a sophisticated irrigation system, a property management company, two landscape companies and landscape consultants, and county guidelines for the proper care of protected native oaks trees, it does not have an oak tree management process. But because it is intent n cutting this Grand Oal Tree, it hires a so-called tree expert Arbor Essence's Kerry Norman who describes his own inspection as "limited" and concludes "there are no signs of life" - see branch on the right - does that look like a sing of life to you?
We asked Mr. Norman to clarify his clearly flawed report, but we have not heard from him.
Our premise is that a carpenter measures twice, cuts once. Should an oak tree expert not use a thorough inspection to give the Grand Old Oak Tree the benefit of the doubt?
