I've been through this whole thread in anticipation for visiting LA this year among with other cities. The picture's have me more excited then ever! I didn't know to much about LA other then the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the beautiful Santa Monica beach. But your thread has given me an insightful presentation of the real LA not just all the Hollywood scenes. LA seems to have a very unique and ambiguous identity, it's certainly a fascinating city that just gets more fascinating thanks to your pictures. So keep them coming!

Sorry I haven't updated much - I recently just moved to Burbank and I can't afford a flickr account but I should start posting more pictures of the valley now

There are few varieties that can do well, this one is called Prunus Serrulata 'Pink Cloud'

Yeah when i was in LA, i noticed many trees which are found in the bush here in Australia. But yeh they are Eucalyptus Trees.[/QUOTE]

Wow, I'm amazed they have Eucalyptus trees there (and in Israel!). They're such an Australian tree, totally synonymous with Oz.

I guess now we can release an invasion of feral, evil koalas in the United States, a la The Simpsons.

Indeed. I live close to Sacramento and just a a few miles away there is a substantial grove of Eucalyptus. Apparently they were planted for their wood but the project never worked out and the trees were left to fend for themselves.

They are street trees for many parts of the city. I think it's the second-most trees after Palms ( including all the different types of palms together )

well some areas of Australia have the same weather as Israel and California so it's not much of a surprise to have the same trees...
