Frequent CHS Flickr Pool contributor sea turtle makes a point. Or something. But, yes, a tree has fallen along Belmont Ave E’s downward slope off the northwest side of Capitol Hill. Yes, it’s been there for days. Being a little pinched for time, we haven’t made any calls about it so don’t know SDOT’s plan — or if it’s already been dealt with.

Trees on hills are very important to erosion. They might be there for that reason.

There are many accounts of property owners cutting down trees that are in the way of their view, and having their house slide down the hill during a bad storm.
