Sonoma Co. Cutting Redwoods

The Santa Rosa Press- Democrat informs us that widening of the Highway 101 corridor between Santa Rosa and Windsor will begin in spite of the state's budget problems. We're also told that project will involve the removal of 342 redwood trees between Steele Lane and Santa Rosa Avenue.

I'll be keeping an eye on the Press- Democrat to see if anybody tries to stop the project. Hey, if some people are upset over a handful of trees being cut down at Richardson Grove, I can't imagine at least a few people not being upset over this project, don't you think?

I imagine there will be opposition, just as there's been opposition to the widening of 101 in Santa Rosa for years. I can't picture where those trees are though. Originally there was supposed to be a picket line of redwood trees planted from Petaluma to Healdsburg, but it turns out that trees don't grow so well in a constant cloud of carbon monoxide. Go figure.

But Fred they are too busy filing a lawsuit against the NCRA for mortgaging property in Ukiah.
