Heritage redwoods at El Camino and Ravenswood

For me, there is only one pretty section on El Camino in all of Menlo Parkā€”the group of 7 heritage coast redwoods at the corner of Ravenswood and El Camino. These are lovely trees, full, lush, brilliant green and healthy. Most redwoods away from the coast are spindly and dry but this group, especially when lit at Christmas, are near perfect and a real treat to the eye. Please do not permit their destruction. The fact that 14 new trees are being offered as a replacement would be like substituting a clump of shrubs for a majestic oak and calling it an even trade.

There has got to be a better way of addressing a leaking parking garage than destroying these trees.
