PASADENA - After long consideration, the City Council decided early Tuesday morning to put a hold on a plan to remove ficus and carrotwood trees along Colorado Boulevard.
Business and property owners argue that ficus and carrotwood root systems are destroying drains and sidewalks and that droppings from the trees create a mess, problems that Tyler had hoped the city would pay to fix.
The replacement of 11 large ficus and 20 carrotwood trees between Lake and Los Robles avenues with 17 ginko and 60 palm trees is part of the Playhouse District streetscape plan, which was originally approved by city leaders more than 10 years ago but came back before City Council members in January for approval of a contract to remove the trees.
