Sacramento Valley Oak Trees. Here is a recognized Champion that is in great peril..
Remember the Butternut Tree. That was the beautiful ultra green and very old tree that got in the way of some engineers. The tree lost the argument. Now another tree has planted itself in the wrong place. Here are some pics of that beautiful valley oak. This controversy is the ultimate example of unrepairable egotism. An engineer has decided that there is only one possible answer to a problem. Because some engineer was so dead certain the he was absolutely right we lost a one hundred year old Butternut Tree, in town by the river in July. Now we’re facing the same thing on a levee by the airport. This time it’s a Valley Oak that’s over three hundred year old. The engineers have decided that there is only one way to deal with the levee problem in the Sacramento valley and to prove it, will destroy a tree that is over 300 years old. Rise up and let somebody know, don’t cut Isabella. This tree is a champion. Refer to SacBee.com 10/30/2010, Home & Garden, Debbie Arrington.
