Los Arboles Sign Restoration

March 12, 2015

Completed restoration and new PAST sign. 2015 bloom

Isn't the wisteria beautiful! It was worth the effort!

Preservation work on the original Los Arboles sign began with a work party on June 9, 2012 to clear the overgrowth. In doing so, it was discovered that termites had invaded the wisteria growing there. An arborist was consulted and began treatment of the plant on August 27, 2012. Work was completed on Septermber 25, 2012.

PAST is pleased to support to this project. If you would like to donate, you may send a check to PAST Heritage, P.O. Box 308, Palo Alto, CA 94302. Thanks!
