Fig Victory

A 100 plus-year-old Moreton Bay fig tree on Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta got a rare reprieve over the weekend after residents rallied to stop construction crews from chopping it down, reports the Glendale News Press. Even though she received permission from the LA County Supervisors to cut down the tree, "Jenny Nam, owner of New Star Realty and Investment at 2620 Foothill Blvd., told a group of La Crescenta leaders that she will instruct crews not to cut and further trim the prized fig tree, which they had begun hacking away at Friday afternoon."
