1. Summary.

This is the most recent report on the imminent logging by the Department of Conservation and Recreation on Memorial Drive on the Charles River.

My blog will not handle all the photos at once.  So I am presenting them in sequence.  This follows on prior reports with the destruction plans, and other photos, plus suggestions on added sanctions for the previously legislatively punished agency in question.

The most recent prior reports are an excellent example of what the DCR is fighting for in this fraudulent operation.  Cambridge destroyed trees the DCR wanted destroyed.  Cambridge claimed to be doing sewer work.  Cambridge and the DCR created the first part of the DCR’s planned massive wasteland.

These photos continue the excellent and condemned grove of cherry trees at the Memorial Drive split.  My memory is that 83 of 105 excellent trees are slated for destruction, PLUS ALL of the excellent group of cherry trees across from the Hyatt Regency.

My photos of October 22, 2015, did not do an adequate presentation of the 100% condemned strand across from the Hyatt Regency.  I will photo them from the Memorial Drive side, with all them condemned by those vile orange spots.

The “approvals” received by the DCR for this outrage are non existent.  They simply asked for money without saying what they were doing.  The DCR has announced a second public meeting for the irresponsible, but far less destructive proposal at Magazine Beach.  That proceeds with the fraud of being a responsible entity.

Naturally, the massive destruction is kept as secret as possible.

As near as I can figure out, the lobbying effort in the legislature amounted to the falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” showing a petition for underpasses under three bridges further out on the Charles.  It appears that they lied that the petition for underpasses supported this massive destruction, without, of course, mentioning the destruction.

The falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” openly supported this destruction about ten years ago when fraud was not the in thing.  The destruction has not changed.  Fraud is now the open tool.

2. Photos from 10/22/15, fifth grouping.

The photos have a difficult job reproducing the orange marks of planned death.  The plumage of these excellent trees blocked the light needed to do the job.  Please review the plans in the prior report for exact information, link below, as the second grouping.  The blackened circles are doomed, excellent trees.  I think it is every tree next to the Charles in the orchard, plus a significant number of others.

This report will be followed by more photos of this condemned, excellent, cherry orchard.  Two photos look like they could be from the median.  they are not.  They are from the grove.  The truck is a worker vehicle.

It is possible that some unprotected trees may yet be protected.  I cannot wait until they are done protecting the few trees they are not destroying.  By then it will be too late.

3. Past Reports in THIS series, and a communication showing everything to a bad city council.

A. Communications to Public Agencies — Cambridge City Council, destruction plans; MassDOT proposing sanctions; DCR adding to the sanctions.

(1). DCR Destruction Plans as provided to Cambridge City Council by me on April 1, 2014, full publication of plans in post:
(2). Detailed analysis to MassDOT suggesting, at minimum that they get legislative approval to allow DCR to manage open space being created in the Mass. Pike (I90) reconstruction on the south side of the Charles, ideally to ban DCR from the project area,
(3). Communication to DCR objecting to the fraud of seeking “approvals” for the irresponsible, but much less irresponsible project at Magazine Beach while going forward with this outrage in secret, October 13, 2015:
