The 2015 summer at Alisal is off to a rather exciting start. On the morning of June 23rd we noticed a growing crack in the trunk of our stately old sycamore tree just outside the front office. Sadly by that afternoon we had Pacific Tree ready to start removing the it. So, the next time you drive up to the Alisal front office, see if you notice something different. The sycamore tree that had served the Alisal so well in its sentinel role for many years is no longer with us. What will we raise up to take its place? That is now the question.
