Los Angeles to replace dying palms with native species

The tall, skinny palm trees that have come to define Los Angeles will be replaced with native species as they die of old age and disease.

The City Council on Monday agreed to replace the trees with oaks, sycamores and other native species that provide more shade and are native to Los Angeles.

The news will likely disappoint legions of fans who say the palms have become synonymous with the city's beaches, warm weather and movie stars.

Large numbers of palms are dying of a fungal disease, and tree surgeons don not know how to stop the bacteria that gets into the soil. Because new palms will likely fall victim to the same ailment, it does not make sense to replace dying palms with more palms, reports AP.

The change goes into effect as the city begins Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's goal to plant 1 million trees in Los Angeles.

My article The True Judas discussed the theory that Judas's actions in betraying Jesus were motivated by a misunderstanding of Christ's mission and purpose.
