The principal of Chimborazo has requested the 100+ year old trees in front of the school be removed and they are coming down! They have already taken one down and I am trying to save the rest. I believe this to be an emergency situation. I have contacted Cynthia Newbille, Donald Coleman, the principal (Ms. Burton), the city arborist, and Karen Jones of the CHA. I just hoping to have a “stay of execution” until this matter can be throughly reviewed.
P.S. – the trees were not requested to be removed through the city public works dept, and thus no “this tree is scheduled to be removed” notices were posted. There are about 5 trees – it is a part of landscaping project requested through the Richmond Public Schools by Ms. Burton with NO community input. They are all huge and beautiful and healthy.
