Catherine and Bill Osier, San Clemente
We live on Avenida Lobeiro, facing the entrance to the Calafia State Park. On Calafia, a very old and decaying eucalyptus tree located on the state’s easement has been dangerously close to the telephone wires for some time. The proximity has caused an ongoing fire hazard to our property, as well as to the surrounding canyon.
We contacted Rich Hayden and Charlie Porter to assess the problem.
Instead of getting the run around, like all of us have sometimes experienced with our public agencies, within a short period of time the tree was removed and cleaned up. We all can now rest better when the fire season comes this year.
Our sincerest thanks to Charlie Porter and Rich Hayden, as well as groundskeeper Danette (who kept me posted when I saw her working hard).
