After being featured on the Santa Barbara View, the eucalyptus trees which have been inappropriately cut down along East Valley Road, now have a legal defense fund. According to the group which has set up the Tree Legal Defense Fund… “this is a complicated, high-stakes situation, but our goal is simple: to save the trees through community action, historical designation and through the court system, if necessary.”
“We are raising a legal defense fund to protect the East Valley Road eucalyptus trees. We only need pledges for now. If they begin to destroy any more of these century-old trees without having participated in a multi-agency review and permit process, we will try to stop them in the courts. The goal is $10,000. We have our first pledge of $1,000. If you can help in this manner, please call 805-451-7440 or send an email to email@example.com .
