Saw a guy on McAllister one time reading a similar notice on a similar kind of sidewalk tree. He was having none of it. He was all, “I fucking know an arborist.” Perhaps Dude saved that one particular tree – I’ll have to check and see if its still there.
But this tree is a goner. Now you’d think DPW would have noticed that this particular tree was dead a loooooong time ago, but better late than never, I suppose.
He’s dead, Jim:

IMO, DPW should take care of the trees it already has instead of planting new ones, but that’s just me…
Oh wow, man. I’m not used to seeing outer Post Street from the pre-Redevelopment era.
(Then the people from SPUR came along with “ideas and action for a better city” to Urban Renewal this place with big, hulking, earthquake-unsafe buildings (“The Mall Has It All!” – that’s what the SPUR people used to say before they changed their name to hide from their legacy) and garages and that’s where we are today.)
Esquire: “For Sukiyaki complete with chopsticks, visit “Cherryland,” where only Japanese food is served.”
I’ll tell you man, at first I didn’t notice this change on Arguello in the Presidio, the Arguello Gap Closure Project.

• New pedestrian path
• New bike lanes with lane markings and signage
• Addresses gap in pedestrian and bicycle network between southern portion of the Presidio with the Main Post
• Relocation of street lights
• Updated storm drain infrastructure”
Which is sort of funny.
At first I thought this could have been part of traffic enforcement, but it turned out to be a quick TJ’s run.
And this was after the officer beeped (not with a regular car horn, but with the loud, low growling noise that these cars can make whatever that’s called) at a pedestrian, for some unapparent reason, unless it was a routine beep to say Here I Come On The Sidewalk, Look Out Peds!
In mitigation, the officer didn’t park in a stall at the mostly-unused Lucky Penny parking lot at Geary, seen camera right.
And this technique is a lot more efficient than queuing up for a space at the badly-engineered TJ’s lot.
And this parking job didn’t block traffic at all.
Anyway, I’ve never seen this before – it’s kind of a funny way to park, IMO.
