The following question was posed to Willie Brown recently:
Rec and Park is planning to cut down 20,000 healthy trees because they are not native; considering the threat to global warming and Al Gore’s advice to plant lots of tree, what would you do about this tree destruction plan?
His answer, in part:
“I would terminate every person connected to my administration who would advocate cutting down any of the trees in this city.”
He goes on to say: “It is ludicrous for this city to be talking about removing trees that are allegedly not native to the environment” …. “I would direct the Rec and Park department to cease and desist, and if they don’t, it will not be the trees removed, it will be you removed !”
