Comox Street (between Burrard and Thurlow)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "This is one of the worst examples of boulevard planting. It shows both inner and outer planting on the left side, while on the right it will be noted that the outer boulevard is planted in one section of the block and inner planting on the other section. The trees on the left (heavy forest maples) average ten to twelve feet spacing."

Bute Street (corner Barclay)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "Bare trunks and arms are all that remain after these trees are reduced to make habitable this new apartment block 'Coniston Lodge'. The trees on the other side of this block are similarly treated."

Melville Street (West of Burrard)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "One of the streets whose trees were heavily pruned at the expense of the B.C.E. Rly. Co., at a cost of $3,000, a few years ago, the work being necessary to remove the menace caused through the heavy growth coming in contact with light wires. NOTE: The trees have grown almost to their former size and further heavy expense is again necessary to reduce them."

Haro Street (between Cardero and Bidwell)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "The pole-like looking tree is all that remains of what was once a full grown Lombardy poplar; this is how the owner of the house fronting them dealt with these specimens in order to obtain light and air and to prevent dampness, from which his house was suffering. Note the variety of other trees and their close spacing."

Thurlow Street (corner of Davie looking north)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "On the right is another example of the growth of the forest maples after heavy pruning a few years ago by the B.C.E. R[ai]l[wa]y. Co. to remove the danger from contact with their light wires. These trees have almost reached their former proportions and the danger still exists. On the left note the inner and outer planting and the large tree in the foreground, one hundred feet in height."

Denman Street (between Nelson and Comox)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "In this block the heavy type of forest maple was planted on the inner boulevard. This is a typical instance of how the owners of the houses affected by such trees deal with them in their desire for light and air. NOTE: That in the next block is outer planting."

Bidwell Street

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "This scene is common wherever the native or forest maple grows. Every year work of this nature has to be undertaken at a heavy cost. Note the size of the roots which lift the sidewalks."
