These pictures tell the story eloquently. Hopefully, they will help decision-makers realize what they’ve got in this urban jewel before it’s gone. Enough of paving paradise! We can have the transit-oriented village AND a good percentage of these beautiful trees; they are not mutually exclusive unless the only consideration is profit.  Thanks for all the work you put into this post.

Thanks for publishing the link to Max Feingold's eloquently written and superbly photographed story on Group Health's intention to clear cut the 1,000+ trees on its 28 acre Overlake property.

The local nonprofit 'Citizens and Neighbors for a Sustainable Redmond' has filed a legal appeal of the City of Redmond's decision to allow this desecration of the environment.

Anyone wishing to support this effort can send a check to:
PO Box 2194, Redmond WA 98073. Unfortunately, donations are not tax deductible.

Can you please point on a map where exactly the site is? It looks like a nice place for an afternoon walk but I am not sure where exactly this is.
