Sat Aug 23 2008U.C. Increases Attacks On Berkeley Tree-Sit
Sat Aug 23 2008Oak Grove Facing New Challenges
On Thursday August 21st, the University of California cut off branches from trees used by tree-sitters. Limbs were cut off of two or more oak trees in the middle of the grove. The extractors then used a large crane with four people in a basket and cut down two five gallon jugs of water, several bags of food, other gear. They almost succeeded in cutting down one of the platforms but were prevented from doing so by those in the trees. After six hours UC Police Chief Harrison went up and spoke to the tree sitters and said that they were done for the day.
The tree-sit is intended to protect the Memorial Oak Grove, which is located in the 2000 block of Piedmont Ave in Berkeley. It lies adjacent to Memorial Stadium where Cal's football team plays its games and reportedly stands atop a portion of a Native burial ground for the Ohlone tribe. Some of the trees in the Grove were planted in 1923 as part of a World War I Veterans Memorial. The current stadium, which is adjacent to the Oak Grove, stands atop the Hayward earthquake fault.
