An historic 100+ year old fig tree in downtown Redwood City is to be cut down by the developer. Sign the petition today to save this tree! Greystar Real Estate Partners (operating $200 billion in real estate worldwide) has submitted plans for a mixed-use development on 5 blocks bordering El Camino Real, Main Street, Cedar, and Elm. In the parking lot of Main & Elm Restaurant (150 Elm Street) and straddling the fence line with California Detailers, Inc., is a 25-foot fruit-bearing fig tree scheduled to be cut down. Sign the petition to demand that Greystar alter their design plans to incorporate this much-loved heritage tree and monument to Redwood City’s early days, into their mixed-use property. Safeguarding the remaining mature trees in the urban canopy is the wisest step towards meeting the goals of the Climate Action Plan recently adopted by the city. This tree will bestow health benefits to the residents of the future apartments, the neighbors in this underserved community, and the children at the future childcare center. And with a 100+ year-old fig tree nearby, the fruit trees that will be planted in the community garden on Maple & Elm, bordering the development, will have something to aspire to. Sign the petition today to save this 100+ year-old fig tree!
