Per the Pasadena Star News, supporters of the majestic Colorado Boulevard trees now ask for two things: “For a big turnout Monday (2/23/09) at 6:30pm, City Council Chambers, 100 N. Garfield Ave., Pasadena, during Public Comment. And for an immediate moratorium on the removal of all (safe) street trees until a real forestation plan is put in place.”
Sure, the Ficus tree may not be the best tree for this part of Pasadena. But, many people have doubts if the chosen replacement trees are, in the net, going to be much better.
Can you imagine if the city were to decide to next take their chainsaws to mow down the Ficus on Green St?!
How could this happen in Pasadena? In the Playhouse District?? In a “Green” friendly city? Can it be because we didn’t care for even a minute.
How sad. Shame on us. Isn’t it a pity…
