Around Lake Merritt

Proposed improvements on Lakeshore Avenue

A brief excerpt from the poster above outlining the City’s position on tree removal around Lake Merritt (and other city parks):

There seems to be a philosophical difference between the approach of the City and that of some citizens regarding trees in urban parks. Some citizens feel that all trees should be left in place until they die, no matter what. The City takes the approach that trees in an urban park should be managed as one would take care of a garden at home.
