County targets 179 live oaks for clearing




The County wants to remove 179 coast live oaks in Arcadia for the sake of letting dredged silt spread out from a reservoir more effectively. It sounds impossibly stupid, a complete bureaucratic travesty, and therefore it is likely to happen. Supervisor Mike Antonovich has given the doomed trees a thirty-day reprieve and a chance for the Sierra Club to mobilize opposition. Given that it's holiday time, things are looking bad for 179 coast live oaks.
