Burning Tree

New, 3 comments

While it's a long-standing tradition for some San Francisco residents, burning your Christmas tree on Ocean Beach in January is still very illegal. Federal park police and rangers have had enough, and are increasing patrols during the next few weeks to "educate" and in some cases cite folks who think it's cool to burn a tree on a beach. On Tuesday night alone, eight people were cited and slapped with $125 fines. [SFGate/photo via Michael Williams]
