According to Dolores Park Works, one or more people tried to chop down one of the three large Washingtonia Palms near the 20th Street J Church stop at Dolores Park:
The arborist declared the tree an immediate hazard, it leaned over the MUNI tracks, and work began to take it down early this afternoon. The crew arrived just as the crowd of sunbathers were gathering on Gay Beach. The tree crew needed to bring in two large cherry-picker trucks and a large pick-up through the Gay terrace. A path was cleared through the growing crowd and by 2 pm, the tree was down.
