ECHO PARK — Saturday saw more tree trimming and cutting action on Sunset Boulevard as the city begins work on an $853,000 streetscape improvement program. About three dozen trees, including the Green Giant in the 1500 block of Sunset, will or have been cut down, and more than 120 new trees planted on a 1.3-mile stretch of Sunset from Rosemont Avenue on the west and Innes Street on the east.

A ground breaking ceremony for the improvement project –  which includes sidewalk repairs, benches, trash cans and pocket parks – was held last week.
