The City Council on March 6 approved replanting 14 City-owned trees with generous assistance from the Del Mar Foundation.

The Foundation, which is planting 40 trees to celebrate its 40th anniversary, has volunteered to buy the 14 replacement trees and cover the $5,600 cost for the City arborist to plant them.

The trees include 10 Torrey pines, three Monterey cypress and one Aleppo pine. The planting locations are along Camino del Mar, Pine Bluff Preserve, Sea Cliff Park, Jimmy Durante Boulevard, 9th Street and Cuchara Drive.

Planting is expected to begin next month.

Del Mar's Public Tree Policy Manual requires the City to replace City-owned trees that have died or have been removed because of poor health or because they present a danger.

Drought conditions delayed the replanting of some trees. Recently, San Diego County Water Authority officials informed the city that replanting them would not conflict with State or local drought directives.
