A company called Vanguard Outdoor began marketing the site of this sign alongside the 10 freeway at Robertson Blvd. last year, even though all new supergraphic signs were prohibited by action of the City Council.

A number of cases of tree cutting in the freeway right-of-way for the apparent purpose of improving visibility for advertising signs have been reported to Caltrans.  One of those illegal acts occurred less than a mile from the Vanguard Outdoor site, on the 10 freeway at National Blvd.
