Two Trees for Dolores

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



    Why a Long-Weekend Trip to Juneau is Good for the Soul

    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.
