Countdown Starts for Glen Canyon Trees

We’ve been writing here about the trees in Glen Canyon scheduled for destruction – a total of over 400 eventually. Well, the countdown has started. A whole bunch of trees have been posted for removal. The comment period is until October 15th, 2012.

[Click HERE to go to a website and blog specifically about Glen Canyon Park and its threatened trees.)

San Francisco Forest Alliance is asking SF Recreations and Parks Department to modify the plans and save the trees.

Here are photographs of some of the threatened trees. Scroll down for a list of people to call and write to.

    it would be helpful to list all the email addresses together so we can write to all the city representatives together.

    Double insanity. I feel like I’m dying when they cut down wonderful trees like the ones the owls nest in. And when supervisor Scott says park & Rec has zero money to maintain street trees this is so insane to have other money to ruin the park forests.
