Re: “Caltrans Claims Victory in Richardson Grove Decision [Updated]

Hello Everybody. We must stop pointing fingers and dividing. It is not about taking a side. What we must remember is at the end of this day, there is no refund or guarantee that the old growth lining the 101 will not be injured from lifting up that old hwy concrete and that the roots are the most vulnerable. The roots are the most important part of an old growth redwood tree. They are a delicate system. It is true that caltrans is not going to cut down these old growth redwoods, but they are planning to cut the roots that are in the way, 2in in diameter or less. They are going to use compressed air to remove the earth from the base of the old growth redwood trees more than a foot. Remember redwoods don't have a tap root and the roots can be hundreds of feet long reaching out horizontally with the earth being very narrow. That is how they reach out for water and one of the ways they turn from being just a tree into an ecosystem. If those trees die or get sick it will be a loss for everyone. With all of these people there must be a better solution. Please stay focused and protect our ancient redwood trees. We need a solution where everyone wins. Put a damn light in so it doesn't matter how big you are ,or your truck, and everyone can keep working.
