Are trees in Alamo protected like they are in Lafayette and Orinda? If so, what specific trees are protected? Are there any guidelines as to lightening up the canopy for some of the bigger trees? Thanks.

Short answer, yes. Alamo is unincorporated so the trees fall under the county rules. You can read the applicable codes on municode (Title 8 Zoning - Division 816 Trees) but you could also probably get a quick answer by contacting the county directly and telling them the specifics of your trees.
