Menlo Park really needs to find a new arborist. This is just another example of an unsafe tree being denied removal. Luckily no one was hurt this time, who knows what will happen next time. Maybe it's time to find an arborist that actually knows how to do their job and puts safety above protecting dangerous trees?

This car meant the world to me. We had many adventures and trips together. I will miss my Mini Cooper dearly.
