Add comment on:Redwood Grove Under Threat of Removal @ UC Berkeley
UC Berkeley intends to remove a grove of 16 redwood trees (and one maple tree) from a lot behind Soda Hall on UC Berkeley campus, in order to build a institute for design innovation. Local activists have concerns that the UC is not taking into account the environment impact the removal of the grove will have. Furthermore, Berkeley city government (Mayor Tom Bates) is supporting the removal of the redwood grove, by claiming the trees impede pedestrian right of way on Ridge Road; even though an examination of the lot shows this not to be true.
