When it comes to trees, Mr. Hernandez prefers his round

Echo Park resident Javier Hernandez spends at least one hour twice a month trimming, shaping and cleaning up after the trio of 10-year-old ficus trees in front of his Lemoyne Street home. The 59-year-old construction worker said he would save time using an electric trimmer but he prefers using shears and scissors to snip off each leaf that has yellowed or grown out of place on his green globes. “I like to garden … I like the exercise.”
