Contra Costa Citizens For Eucalyptus Trees at Demonstration in Defense of East Bay Forests
by CCC4EucTrees (ccc4euctrees [at] yahoo.com)

On Sunday, October 30, 2016 the newly founded Contra Costa Citizens FOR Eucalyptus Trees joined the protest of the Coalition to Defend East Bay Forests outside of the annual meeting of the Claremont Canyon Conservancy, an organization that promotes the deforestation of the East Bay Hills. The following is the statement they distributed. For more information about the issue see https://defendeastbayforests.wordpress.com/


CONTRA COSTA CITIZENS FOR EUCALYPTUS TREES
 
 

Contra Costa County is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District.
 
The citizens of Contra Costa County state the Claremont Canyon Conservancy does not represent the people of Contra Costa County, or even the people of Oakland.

Our East Bay forests belong to all the people who live in the East Bay, not just to a few who select themselves to be spokesmen for eradication and distruction, like the Claremont Canyon Conservancy.

The Claremont Canyon Conservancy is a small group of affluent people who live in the Oakland Hills. If they believe where they live is dangerous they should move. Nobody is forcing them to live in the Oakland Hills.

Contra Costa County believes in the recommendations made by the U.S. Forest Service not to cut eucalyptus trees.

Contra Costa County believes in FEMA's conclusion that cutting eucalyptus trees is counterproductive to fire safety.

We believe in preserving what two governmental agencies and Wildland Fire Prevention expert David Maloney has said is important to retain – our eucalyptus forests.
