Coral Trees

They're not in bloom right now, so they are only as cool as a 4 mile stretch of giant trees can be. Really cool! It's funny because they're super expensive to maintain and instead of replanting them with an easier tree, they made them a historic monument. By doing this, we're forced to protect these trees. They're not the only trees on the monument list:
  • Monument #148.0 – Coral (Erythrina caffra) trees on San Vicente Boulevard between Bringham Avenue and 26 th Street
  • Monument #465.0 – Sycamore (Platanus racemosa) trees on Bienvenida Avenue between Sunset Boulevard and dead end south of Sunset Boulevard
  • Monument #93.0 – California Pepper (Schinus molle) trees on Canoga Avenue between Ventura Boulevard and Saltillo Street
  • Monument #49.0 – Olive (Olea europea) trees on Lassen Street between Topanga Canyon Boulevard and Farralone Avenue
  • Monument #24.0 – Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) (deceased) in median island on Louise Avenue 210' south of Ventura Boulevard
  • Monument #41.0 – Deodar Cedar (Cedrus deodar) trees on White Oak Avenue between Devonshire Street and Ronald Reagan Freeway (118)
  • Monument #94.0 – Median island Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffianum) and Mexican Fan Palm (Washingtonia robusta) trees on Highland Avenue
  • Monument #509.0 – Camphor (Cinnamomum camphora) trees in the 1200 block of Lakme Avenue
  • Monument #67.0 – Deodar Cedar (Cedrus deodar) trees on Los Feliz Boulevard between Riverside Drive and Western Avenue
