Heritage Tree Removal at 240 University Drive, Menlo Park

Dear Council Members,

I am writing to protest the proposed removal of an enormous heritage redwood tree at 240 University Drive. This is a beautiful and very healthy redwood tree. According to the Menlo Park Heritage Tree Ordinance, oaks and redwoods have a special protected status in our city. I realize the location of the tree makes it difficult to maximize development of the lot, was this not obvious to the developers when they purchased it? There are ways to build around the tree and preserve it for the benefit of our city. Which is after all, the intent of our heritage tree ordinance.
