Document Description
The Stoneham property, bordering Carnegie SVRA on the west side, was purchased by the State last year as part of an expansion plan for the park. The house and outbuilding are slated for demolition in the future, after completion of a hisorical preperty inventory. On the east side of the abandoned house are several overgrown and poorly trimmed eucalyptus trees. The trees are growing in and under the PG&E high voltage utility line. The trees range in height from 32 to 45-ft. According to PG&E, the trees have been directionally pruned in the past, but have not responded to corrective pruning. They are growing above the power lines and wind sway and limb drop threatens the power lines. The trees represent an on-going risk to public safety and outages. PG&E has requested permission to remove the trees and will take care to remove all slash and brush.
