Beautiful Mature Trees Being Felled in Golden Gate Park

Well before the Environmental Impact Report on the Significant Natural Areas Management Plan (SNRAMP, sin-ramp) has been certified, SF Recreation and Parks Department is felling beautiful, mature trees – because they’re non-native. It’s too late to save these trees… but we will not forget them. [Edited to Add: These trees are were in the Oak Woodlands area of the Golden Gate Park. They’re adjacent to a Natural Area, though we can’t tell if they’re actually inside it. ]

    Not this park too! Don’t these people have anything better to do with their time and taxpayers’ money? Can’t they concentrate on something other than destruction?

  2. We should seek a court order to stop this tree removal. Knowing that there is resistance to this destruction only emboldens those wishing the get the trees down before they can be stopped.
