Two Trees for Dolores

Palm trees are popping up around San Francisco thanks to the city

San Francisco is now two trees richer.

Thanks to the city's Urban Forestry crew, two 18-foot palm trees were just installed at Dolores between 30th and San Jose.

The San Francisco Chronicle estimates they cost a couple thousand apiece -- yikes! But San Francisco adores trees -- possibly because they give us massages -- so as far as we're concerned, it's just about the least objectionable thing that the city spends money on.

And speaking of palms, have you seen the majestic gateway at the recently-reopened Milton Marks Library in the Richmond? Two tall palms frame the entrance, and the interior is a great mix of modern renovations and historical preservation.

Is there a walking tour of San Francisco's finest palm trees? Somebody get on that, please.
