Robert Down Trees Granted Visas To Stay

The trees can stay but the school board needs to be reduced by a seat or two.

Four recently planted apple trees at Robert Down Elementary School — which parents planted two weeks ago during a school cleanup day without prior approval — will be allowed to stay, the Pacific Grove Unified School District board decided.

The day after the semi-dwarf trees were planted, a district official ordered them removed because their placement hadn’t received a prior OK from administrators or the school board.
