It's shearing season for the city's palm trees. Crews are taking advantage of the sunny weather to trim the palm tree beards, which are getting kinda scraggly.The tree pictured above is the first to get topped on the grounds of Hollywood High at Highland and Sunset. Is it us or does the little tree now look like the Muppet Beaker, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's assistant?
