Save the Oak trees

To the Editor:

We are writing in response to the Gates-King industrial project. We read this morning that this project, which has been approved, will mean the removal of 1,400 oak trees. If even half that number are
removed, it is entirely too much.

Recently, we the voters approved raising our taxes in order to create open space around our city. Now our council chooses to support a project that will destroy many oaks within the city. Where is the logic in that? Well, I guess it is obvious. Money talks. It wasn't so long ago that a big deal was made when one oak tree was in danger. Thankfully, it was moved in an effort to save it.

Surely there is a way to have industrial growth without destroying our valley and its beautiful, and necessary, oak trees.
