Prompt response — DPW trims Circular Ribbon Garden oak tree

The San Francisco Department of Public Works took over care of the city’s street trees a couple years ago.  Here is that voter-approved proposition in action — a big oak tree in the Circular Ribbon Garden needed a good deal of attention, and a request recently brought DPW workers out to work on it. They did a great job. Thank you DPW!

A peak into the past of this spot in Sunnyside — here is the little triangle garden over 90 years ago, when there were railroad tracks nearby instead of the freeway. Photos:
