Destruction coming on the Charles River
The vilest thing about Cambridge, the Department of Conservation and Recreation and their fake groups is their constant lying that they are environmental saints.
I have reported on the imminent and downright silly October 2011 destruction of the core Alewife reservation by these people loudly declaring their environmental sainthood.
The situation is comparable on the Charles River. The proposed destruction makes no more sense. Here are photos of the 105 tree grove at the Memorial Drive split scheduled for decimation. The photos were taken on September 4, 2011. The Memorial Drive split is about a block east of the Hyatt Regency Hotel and perhaps half a mile east of the BU Bridge.
The DCR sought Obama money to decimate this grove and also DESTROY MANY LARGER, also healthy trees.
The lie they used was that they were destroying diseased trees and they put out the same lie responding to a Boston Globe reporter as well.
Marilyn Wellons gave the governor a copy of their application to the Cambridge Conservation Commission which proved the target trees healthy. There were diseased trees on Memorial Drive. They were destroyed five years ago. The governor apparently prevented the Obama money.
It is highly likely now that there is money in the state budget for the Memorial Drive destruction.
But Cambridge, the DCR and their fake groups do not want to know reality. They just want to destroy and lie that they are environmental saints.
Will these be destroyed before Alewife?
