Despite 21 Month Tree-Sit Berkeley Oaks Cut Down
Mon Sep 8 2008
U.C. Berkeley's Memorial Oak Grove Cut Down
Starting on Friday September 6th, U.C. Berkeley's Memorial Oak Grove started being cut down. A single line of trees was left along the road as an aesthetic screen.

As of Monday morning, all of the trees that the University plans to cut were down except for a redwood that still has four tree sitters in it. Five people were arrested as they peacefully pleaded with arborists not to destroy the trees.

Tree-sitters fought for the trees for 21 months. Some regarded the Memorial Oak Grove as a sacred place to Native American people. The California Native Plant Society CNPS stated that the Memorial Oak Grove was "an important gene bank for the Coast Live Oak."
