400 trees to be cut down to make room for Endeavour

19 Sep

The L.A. City council has ordered that 400 trees will be cut down to make way for the space shuttle Endeavour. The orbiter, which has logged over 123 million miles, will go from L.A.X. to the California Science center. The trees will be sacrificed in so that the wings will fit during the 12 mile ride. I love the space shuttle and I am a big space nut, but don’t you think they could have found a different route or way to do this without killing and removing the trees? I am on the side of the trees. NASA says it will be too much trouble to remove the wings. Do you think this will be worth all the trouble to get Endeavour where it has to go?  I guess  nobody has the power to stop the removal of the trees. I can’t believe this is going to happen despite all the people against it. What do you think? I’d love to hear your comments?

    “Officials with the California Science Center offered to replant four new trees for every tree that will be displaced along Manchester, Crenshaw and Martin Luther King boulevards. The proposed number of trees that would be cut down has already been reduced from 250 to 122.”

    Looks like local protesting has helped, but some residents are still upset about any tree removal period because the mature trees are better at depolluting than the young ones.

    Hey Zack. No matter how you look at it, I guess officials feel that sacrificing trees and removing light poles was eaiser that removing and then putting back on the wings. Sad really. Thanks for you input. I appreciate it.
