most enjoyed the comments from the Thousand Oaks manager and the Cal State manager about how they monitor the health of trees and the work of contractors in construction work as well as the tree selection by LA's. Lots of diverse issues to consider for LA's in specifying trees appropriate to different growing conditions and that will survive over time. Question and answer session also informative.
