Six ficus trees on Larchmont slated for wood chipper

HEARING DATE to consider the removal of six healthy trees on Larchmont is still to be determined.

The city’s Urban Forestry Division announced Jan. 7 that it will consider a permit request to remove six healthy ficus trees at 606 N. Larchmont Boulevard.

The mature side-by-side trees provide a lush canopy that is much needed on the eastern side of the 600 block of N. Larchmont, according to employees who work in offices facing the street on the west. Local residents also are outraged at the prospect of losing so many trees in one spot. 

The request was made by the owner of the four-story office property which the six trees surround. The removal of three or more street trees requires a public hearing. 

As the Chronicle went to press, a hearing date was not yet confirmed. If you would like to be notified once the Board of Public Works sets a hearing date, visit bsspermits.lacity.org where you can request to be notified three to five days before the hearing.
