Mucho mulch in Griffith Park

Because Mother Nature can no longer be trusted in the City of Los Angeles, the City is "hydromulching" the Griffith Park fire burn area this weekend. From Los Feliz, it looks like the whole southeast Mt. Hollywood hillside is being spraypainted by helicopter.
The seasick-green mulch job will cost the City over $2 million. The purported reason for helping nature repair itself is to prevent mudslides; but longtime Griffith Park observers may also consider how the work may speed up of the implementation of Councilman LaBonge's development-friendly Master Plan for the park.
