Description
Photograph caption dated April 27, 1957 reads "As trees get older, age, rot and wind gang up and weaken root structure, causing them to fall. Big job of park workers is to examine all trees and remove them before thay fall and possibly injure someone. Several trees are being removed at Magnolia boulevard and Tujunga avenue. Tree above was victim of nature's forces."; See images #00134922 through #00134923 for all photos in this series.
