Boulevard of Trees historical information now on-line
Original post made by Steve Mick on Apr 14, 2008
Some historical Information on Alamo's Boulevard of Trees Project is now available on the www.alamore.org Web Link website. Through the courtesy of Diane Barley, I scanned both the original brochure for the Boulevard of Trees Project and also the list of personal tree dedications.
In the next several weeks, and with the assistance of Lillian Burns, The Alamo Beautification Advisory Committee (Zone 36) will begin tagging the trees in this project with identifying information.

Many thanks to Diane Barley, Lillian Burns and Steve Mick for this important project. Long ago (1946-1949), our family's Sunday Drive was under a canopy of trees in Alamo.
Maybe, in good humor, we are now closer to changing Danville Blvd to Tree Museum Boulevard. I could imagine crushed rock (water access to trees) pathways along both sides of our boulevard so we can enjoy strolls among the trees. Certainly, covered drainage would add to such pathways and more opportunities for trees.
Applause to all involved,

Dear Hal and neighbors,
I told you Steve Mick has a great sense of humor. I feel almost invited to create Tree Museum Blvd as a toll road, don't you know.
All that is left is to "take all the trees and put them in a tree museum, and charge all the people a dollar and half just to see them!"
Seriously, great work Diane, Lillian and Steve,
Away in Morro Bay

Many neighbors have concluded that Danville Blvd in Alamo could be rejuvenated by the Boulevard of Trees efforts more rapidly if it became part of the East Bay Regional Parks as Tree Museum Boulevard or simply the Boulevard of Trees. We are imagining something like 17 mile drive on the Monterey Peninsula with a visitor's admission fee and resident passes.
Our boulevard would be bordered by level crushed rock pathways and new natural planting under existing and new trees and feature more benches and lighting to make the boulevard a day and night experience.
We would enjoy neighbors opinions and ideas.
