Removal of Redwoods at 1000 El Camino Real

I am unable to attend the informational meeting at 4 pm today given the
time of day and relatively short notice. I do not support the removal of
seven heritage Redwood trees at the corner of 1000 El Camino Real. Among
the many other benefits that these trees provide, the aesthetic value of
the Redwood grove on this corner is high. There have been far too many
heritage trees lost in and around downtown during my nearly ten years
living in Menlo Park. Several Redwoods at the police station on Laurel
suffered and were cut down when the City abruptly stopped watering the lawn
in front of them during the drought. A large, beautiful Oak toppled during
construction at 1010-1026 Alma Street. Nearly all of the trees, including
Redwoods and Oaks, were removed for the developments at 550 El Camino and
1300 El Camino. These are just a few examples and in just one part of the
City. The City needs to make an effort to protect its heritage trees.
