The City of Torrance has completed the removal of eight large eucalyptus trees – some so massive workers used a crane to cut off some big branches – on El Prado Avenue. The trees, at least 60 years old, were so decayed in some cases that when a limb hit the ground “it was just like sawdust,” said Streetscape Manager Judy Emerson. New lemon-scented gum eucalyptus will replace the removed trees.
