It seems awfully late in the day for this, but I’d feel guilty if I didn’t join the effort.
Today, they'll start chopping away at century-old oaks in Arcadia Oak Woodlands. A committee apparently found this the perfect place for a storm debris and sediment dump. These grand old trees made it through World War I, the Great Depression, the invention of television, and the Bush administration, but LA County swings a mean axe.
Here’s the petition where we can ask the County decision-makers to leave the Woodlands alone and go back to doing what they do best: Nothing.
“I’ll tell you what I’ll do for you – nothing. Is that any good to you? Nothing? Mind you, I can’t do it straight away; something is always cropping up. But if I can find the time to do nothing for you, I’ll try to squeeze it in.” – Alice in Wonderland
