Tree removal near Palm Springs golf course causing issues

The plans to remove a swath of trees on one side of a Palm Springs golf course have some residents who live near the course up in arms. When the plan was originally announced by officials from the town to remove trees along the 14th fairway at the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course, many who live in the neighborhood were pleased. One group of concerned residents are now speaking out against the plan.

Residents of a neighborhood across from the fairway are arguing against removing the trees, which are tamarisk, because they have enjoyed the view for the past handful of decades. The city believes that the project will cost roughly $170,000 to complete. Concerned residents are worried that dogs and children will run across the tract to the other neighborhood if the trees are removed. They are also worried about their property values decreasing.

The land where the trees was planted is not owned by the tract anymore but by the city. That is why many believe this issue will come down to a vote by the Palm Springs City Council. Any expenditure by the city that totals more than $20,000 must be approved by a full vote by council.

No one can seem to pinpoint an exact date when the trees were planted or a reason why the trees were planted, not even the Palm Springs Historical Society.

Are you facing issues surrounding the construction law in California? It's best to work with an experienced construction law attorney on your case so it is handled properly and your rights are protected.
