A tree for tree’s sake in Oakland?

A second-hand email landed on my desk about the plan by Highland Hospital to cut down about three dozen trees on 14th Ave as part of the construction on the campus. There’s a meeting tonight 7 p.m. in the Highland cafeteria.  The trees are not endangered and do not house any endangered species. But you can judge for yourself how much of a “wooded transition” they offer. “Wooded transition” are words the Oakland Heritage Alliance used to describe their value. I just wanted to at least put out notice of the meeting, albeit late.
