Speaking of Arbor Day– FYI. Reported by a neighbor on Feburary 29th- “Vandals just cut a big tree down on the dirt/ rustic Santa Rosa path between Pierson n Dutton right behind my house. I left my place at 4:30 went to stony point, heard it fall maybe five minutes before we got home @5… Group of teens were there, but said they just got there… I called the srpd and they said ‘maybe someone would check it out’ Someone’s around with chainsaw? Pretty disgusting. Helen”
