Tree protest on Niles Canyon Road

Well, no tree-sitters yet, but a few Niles residents protested Saturday night as Caltrans crews began removing trees from a section of Niles Canyon Road. If Caltrans’ plan comes to pass, more than 400 trees will be chopped down and more than two miles of retaining walls will be built to widen the road.

Here’s a photo from Steven Ashley Wilson:
