Red Car Property, Riverside Drive: Protected Native Trees In 2014

Photo: Diane Edwardson, August 17, 2014. Days before the first round of tree carnage in August 2014, the Riverside Drive lots below the Red Car Property were pretty park like with dozens of protected California Black Walnut Trees.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Today, the large Coast Live Oak Tree (the large dark green tree on the right) is pretty much the only tree left in this shot.  The oak tree is on the Red Car property which extends 20 - 30' downslope. 

The Riverside Drive lots, roughly between Gilroy and Clearwater, were cleared of trees last month, are in various stages of plancheck, yet grading appears to have begun.
