Erst wenn der letzte Baum gerodet, der letzte Fluss vergiftet, der letzte Fisch gefangen ist, werdet Ihr merken, dass man Geld nicht essen kann.“ (Weissagung der Cree)

"If we're destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there's got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that."
-Ellen DeGeneres

"Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain." -Henry David Thoreau

"For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it." -Jacques-Yves Cousteau

I'm signing this because I'm sick and tired that we always want to destroy our beautiful Country by cutting these old trees, fracking, etc.

It takes decades to grow a mature redwood, which can support a myriad of life forms. Cutting it down takes minutes with no benefit, except to someones’s pocket book.

Heartbreaking and senseless move to try to cut down all 9 Heritage trees. No way this is ok!

Our neighborhood values our large trees -- it is part of what makes this part of Mountain View special. We have a heritage tree ordinance for good reason. To allow an outside developer to take down those trees when a homeowner couldn't is an egregious imbalance.
