Monterey to cut four redwood trees to save historic church





A historic church in the seaside city of Steinbeck can cut down four redwood trees that are damaging the structure, city officials said.

The roots from the 100-foot trees have grown into the foundation and crumbling sandstone walls of San Carlos Cathedral. Church officials also said the trees threatened an adjacent property, which contains pottery remnants and other artifacts dating back centuries to Monterey's early days.

"I will be granting their request to remove all the trees," City Manager Fred Meurer said.
