Dear butchers of San Antonio Road,
Take away a beautiful street. It is shame you did not get more than one opinion on HOW TO REPAIR the roots on the tree….
Another beautiful street, GONE.
You all could have "cut" the roots on the street side and put steel plates on that side to keep the roots from pushing up the road. This is what happens when you only get one opinion…
I guess Middlefield Road will be next.

I agree it a shame to remove the trees and all the green that went with them. They offered an impressive gateway to Mountain View.

It's unfortunate that all the lovely pines have been completely chopped down, leaving the street feeling bare. I hope the replacement trees and plants will eventually restore the street's attractiveness, but it'll be a long time before anything grows large enough to replace the shade and greenery of the missing trees.
