Petition for Alameda’s Trees

Alameda had a rude awakening last week when on Thursday and Friday, with no real notice, the city clear cut all the trees on the south end of Park Street. It may or may not have needed to be done, but the way in which it went down was not ok, and Alamedans across the island are very upset.

I’ll write more about this tomorrow, but have set up a little on-line petition to call on the council to make meaningful changes to make sure this never happens again. Let’s get something positive moving on this before its too late and forgotten.

Find the petition here:

Turns out that you can make stuff up. The City is claiming that these notices are not theirs. Might be a fantastic protest, kudos. To add phenomenal insult to injury, Public Works noticed the stumps for removal! You can’t make this stuff up. Sign the petition.

Protest? hilarious

    This is appalling and the “engineer” responsible for it at City Hall is not providing answers.

    Cutting these trees that beautified the city is such an act of stupidity.

    Marie Gilmore, the Mayor, should take responsibility, and either quit or fire the officials behind this.
