Donald Trump to remove hedge of ficus trees from Trump National Golf Club

Donald Trump will have to remove a 10-foot-high (3-meter) hedge of ficus trees from his Trump National Golf Club.

The City Council of Rancho Palos Verdes, California voted unanimously on the order, and will take final action Dec. 18. Trump will then have three weeks to remove the hedge.

Hundreds of ficus trees were planted to screen the driving range from nearby homes but neighbors complained that some of them blocked their multimillion-dollar ocean views.

"I wish they could be out by Christmas, that would make a great Christmas present," Mayor Doug Stern said this week.

"The City Council should be ashamed of its decision," Trump told the Daily Breeze of Torrance. "It's very sad that the town is willing to destroy this beautiful hedge. There's no plant as beautiful as the ficus."
