We NEED trees to hold soil, filter water, produce air. and stabilize the climate. Clearcutting and leaving sawdust increases danger from FIRE!

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory, Revelation 18:1

"Only when the last tree is cut, the last river is poisoned, the last fish is caught, you will realize that you can not eat money." (Prophecy of the Cree)


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

Cut the trees down and Oakland invites a whole lot of trouble. Read Mr. Tamarin's Trees. It is a kid's book but shows the downside of the destruction of trees. If this is what you are doing a kid's book might be your level of reading.

Disgusting abuse of authority! Oakland's citizens should be consulted by taking a vote on this major catastrophe!

You are going to end up with landslides because of ignorant decisions like this - LEAVE THE TREES ALONE. You are only destroying the environment.

These forests capture moisture from the bay and transfer it to the water table and help cool the city. Replacing it with grasses, heats the city and lowers the water table plus grasses are more fire prone.
