This morning, the arborist came out to assess the damage done to my tree. Thanks to your comments, I asked him if it would be able to salvage the tree; but as you can see, the answer was no. The roots had sustained too much damage to make it stable enough. So now, I am mourning the loss of a wonderful tree...and also wondering: what should I do in place of it?
My initial thought was to plant another tree, so I'm doing some research on the city's site to figure out what kind of tree would be ideal for this spot. Any suggestions?
P.S. I had no idea that Pasadena was notable for its population of naturalized parrots. I also had no idea that Steve Urkel was a resident of Pasadena either.
