But not *those* trees...

Bizarro World "environmentalist" and SE councilperson Jane Goodman speaks.

"Arbor Day celebration…Friday April 27, [2012] 11am at the Nine Mile Marsh greenspace, on Green Road across from Notre Dame and just south of the Sanctuary on Green (1980 S. Green Rd.).

"The South Euclid Tree Commission invites everyone to celebrate Arbor Day and the urban forest.

"Look for price tags going up on trees around town, telling folks how many dollars the tree contributes to the city, and the property owners nearby, by shading homes, roofs and pavements, absorbing and filtering stormwater, cleaning the air, and other services we take for granted." - Jane Goodman - Councilperson (Ward 4)

Here are excerpts from Jane Goodman's promises on her blog post.
"• During construction he has to protect any trees and replace any he removes with adult, large trees, and limit the area his bulldozers compact the soil, and keep soil from washing off the surface into the sewers.

3. This deal would improve the environmental quality of the property in terms of soil, roots, canopy cover, streambank stabilization, sediment control, stormwater infiltration and management, plant and wildlife habitat and diversity, and water quality in Nine Mile Creek. We’d get a smaller amount of BETTER quality green space, and a net gain of trees over what’s there now."
