**The building structure damage at 1000 El Camino Real was not caused by the trees.
**The land at 1000 El Camino Real is owned by the city and leased to the building owner.
**The building structure repair solution proposed by the building owner will damage the trees and require their removal.
**There are alternative building structure repaire solutions that will not damage the trees, but these solutions are costly.
**The city of Menlo Park estimates the monetary value of the trees at $150,000 – not enough to justfy the more costly solutions.
**The original premise of the tree removal is FALSE:
---False premise point #1: The trees are causing damage to the structure (this staff report confirms that this is not the case)
---False premise point #2: No feasible alternatives to removal exist (alternatives do exist that increase the cost of repairs)
