Countdown Starts for Glen Canyon Trees
September 14, 2012 4 Comments
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.
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.
