Rancho Cordova palm first to line new Bay Bridge

RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - A 30-foot Canary Island date palm plucked from the front yard of a Rancho Cordova home Tuesday will become the first in a row of 38 palms lining the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge.

La Gloria Way homeowner James Chin received approximately $3,000 for the front yard tree and a second, slightly shorter palm in the backyard-- and was happy to see them go.

"They were a headache," Chin said.

La Jolla-based West Coast Trees got the Caltrans contract to acquire the mature palms and has been scouting trees around Northern California.

"They make a broad statement," said company representative Dave McDaniel.  "They're gorgeous, big and bold, just like the bridge over there."

Chin answered a craigslist ad last spring, but he and his neighbors only recently learned where the palms were headed.
