After months of debate and multiple arborist assessments, the La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted three to two to authorize the removal a dying oak tree located in the city’s right-of-way at 4341 Encinas Drive. The decision came at the city council meeting on Monday, with Mayor Laura Olhasso and councilmembers Gregory Brown and David Spence voting in favor of the removal, and Mayor Pro Tem Donald Voss and councilmember Steve Del Guercio voting in opposition. The tree, a Coast live oak, or Quercus agrifolia , is one of five species of trees protected by the city’s tree ordinance.

An oak tree once again took center stage at La Cañada City Hall Tuesday as members of the planning commission debated whether to approve the construction of a two story house that could threaten a large Quercus agrifolia. This time the tree won, minus a few branches. The original development proposal detailed plans for a new 3,040-square-feet house to be built on a 8,450-square-feet lot located at 307 San Juan Way. A wide drainage channel runs along the west property line, and rooted in the channel is a 35-foot oak tree.
