Wallcot tall pine

A stately and apparently healthy Monterey pine towering over a Pacific Grove house will come down, the Pacific Grove City Council ruled 5-1 Wednesday.

Residents Stephen and Michaela Braveman sought removal of the tree that stands on the city right-of-way in front of their house at 239 Walcott St. after several Monterey pines in neighboring George Washington Park toppled during a storm in October.

The 30-year-old tree was examined by two former city foresters and both pronounced it healthy but in need of trimming, said city public works director Celia Perez Martinez.
