L.A.’s Trees are Dying but is City Hall Doing Enough to Save Them?

According to a recent study, Los Angeles is failing when it comes to its trees. City leadership, the report said, places little value on its "urban forest," leaving it lacking in visionary management and planning, and well behind in funding to plant and maintain trees and replace those dying from the effects of climate change, drought and insect infestations.

Mountain Lions and SM Mountains Post Woolsey Fire.

With over 150,000 acres of hiking trails, beaches and canyons, the sprawling terrain of the Santa Monica Mountains has always been an integral part of California’s diverse landscape. Last year’s devastating Woolsey fire scorched nearly half of the total land in the Santa Monica Mountains, threatening the natural habitat for over 500 species, including the notable mountain lions (which are the same animal as pumas and cougars).
