We were sent this clip by videographer and artist Lori Ambrosio, who visited the “Kill-trees Trail” (connecting Stanyan x 17th to Medical Center Way).
We thought it was a lovely bitter-sweet evocation of the trees that were there – only months ago.
Clicking on the picture will take you to the video.
Over 50 trees were destroyed along the trail (which is only about 6/10 of a mile). This end of the trail is in the City-owned part of the forest and is part of the Natural Areas Program. Speaking at a meeting last year, Craig Dawson of the Sutro Stewards said that in the UCSF portion of the forest, only one tree was removed while building the trails. This was certainly not the case in the SF RPD land.
We’ll address the details in another post. For now, there’s this.
