When a tree is older than the city that grew up around it, the city must do all it can to protect it.

    I have lived in Milwaukie for about 20 years.Wife & I know Deborah Barnes, former councilwoman.
    The proposed light rail extension and the Sunnybrook extensions are not needed and are destructive.

    There is at least one tree in the Kellogg Creek watershed close to my home that is much older than the biggest white oaks..and they would be cut and destroyed if the Sunnybrook extension does go forward.

    It is a Pacific Yew( taxus brevifolia) that is at least 300 years old..still hale and heart..tho like most yew trees, ‘hiding in plain sight’ amidst the urban forest .Jim Fetrow
