More proof of “non-existent” tree destruction on the Charles River by DCR with the constant Cambridge City Council support.
2. Previously unreported proof of Destruction.
This is an expansion and elaboration of part of my report posted on this blog at https://www.blogger.com/blog/post/edit/19121262/1990575096090637805.
The Cambridge City Council rather persistently lies of environmental sainthood in spite of constant praise of the destructive Department of Conservation and Recreation INCLUDING funds to add to the destruction, and deafening silence during extreme outrages.
The goals of the destructive duo are rather clearly to achieve massive destruction of trees, vegetation and animal habitat on the Charles River, while the Cambridge City Council tells people to ignore reality and look at Pablum.
Some examples of outrages include:
The January 2016 destruction of hundreds of mature trees and animal habitat between the BU Bridge and Longfellow Bridge, as demonstrated in my video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o. A very major portion of this planned outrage was missed has since been announced in rather fraudulent series of public meetings which the City Council praised with maximum deniability.
On June 6, 2017, I passed on to the Cambridge City Council, the DCR’s plans to destroy 54 mostly excellent trees and animal habitat at Magazine Beach along with photos of doomed excellence. That document, whose existence is repeatedly denied in Council while I repeat references and copies, is posted on the Charles River White Geese blog at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.
I have updated the outrages at Communication 2 of October 26, 2020, published by the City Clerk at http://cambridgema.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=2317&Inline=True, pages 182 to 214. This letter is 32 pages with a lot of detail. It is too large to be meaningfully put on this blog. So I have been breaking it out and posting it in segments. The second segment is the one this post expands on.
2. Previously unreported proof of Destruction.
In addition to outrages right on the Charles River, the DCR INCLUDED IN THE CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL PRAISE, has destroyed trees lovingly cared for by the owners of the MicroCenter, ACROSS FROM THE EXCELLENT GROVE THE CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL IS PREPARING FOR DESTRUCTION by funding the Charles River Poisoner to help out.
Here is a drone photo of the targeted grove, from “From Cambridge to Boston with the DJ Inspire 1 Drone footage,” posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN-OmMzvHhw, minute 7.50.
The folks we are dealing with do a lot of lying, so it is helpful to find times they have placed their plans on public record. The drone footage from which this is a blow up occurred shortly after the DCR / Cambridge City Council praised and Cambridge aided destruction in January 2016, but before the plans which I passed on to the know nothing Cambridge City Council in my letter of June 6, 2017.
Those plans show intent to destroy this excellent grove and show intent to destroy two trees on the opposite side of the street (Memorial Drive) from this doomed grove. The DCR with the non stop praise from the Cambridge City Council went beyond their plans and destroyed half the trees across from the doomed grove on the sidewalk for the MicroCenter Shopping Center. That Shopping Center’s parking lot is at the top of this still which I included in my report.
I realized after publication that this photo includes the before destruction status of the trees the DCR totally illegally destroyed next to the MicroCenter Shopping Center.
Here is the after photo of those trees which I have previously provided. NOTE THE MULCH AROUND THE OBVIOUSLY HEALTHY STUMPS of destroyed trees. Memorial Drive is to the right. The two not destroyed trees are straight ahead and the parking lot is to the left. The owner of the parking lot lovingly cared for ALL FOUR TREES.
Here is a blow up as relevant of the drone photo above.
The lovingly cared for trees, now stumps, above are the two trees on the left in front of the MicroCenter Parking Lot. . The not destroyed two trees and also lovingly cared for trees are on the right.
Here are the relevant portion of plans provided by the DCR at their October 26, 2016 show and tell to the Cambridge Conservation Commission.
THESE ARE NOT THE OFFICIAL PLANS. They include significant lies about the “quality” of the trees they are destroying WHICH HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE OFFICIAL PLANS.
The interesting thing when dealing with dishonest entities are admissions against interest. Those are much more likely to be accurate than outright statements. These plans are more detailed and UP TO DATE than the filed plans. These plans also ADMIT THAT ALL OF THE GROVE THE CITY COUNCIL IS CURRENTLY WORKING TO DESTROY ARE EXCELLENT TREES. They cannot even claim under their bizarre lies that these trees are other than excellent.
The SEVEN ADMITTEDLY excellent trees for which the Cambridge City Council is paying the Charles River Poisoner to do destruction preparation are to the left of the plan. The building at the bottom right is the state bath house for its swimming pool.
The lying color code translated ADMITS all seven trees targeted by the DCR and the Cambridge City Council are excellent healthy trees. Destruction plans are the yellow circles. The larger the circles, the larger the doomed trees.
Memorial Drive extends right to left. The two red outlined circles above Memorial Drive are trees destroyed next to the MicroCenter building. The red outline, subject to bizarre lying definition, indicates that the DCR, sniff, did not consider these trees worth saving.
ALL OF THE TREES CURRENTLY BEING TARGETED FOR DESTRUCTION BY THE CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL ARE ADMITTED TO BE EXCELLENT.
The four trees in the above photos are to the left of the two CONFESSED TO destroyed trees on the other side of the driveway which is split in the plans.
Failure to included the four lovingly cared for trees indicates that THEY WERE NOT IN THE PLANNING AREA. Those two trees were clearly destroyed at the same time as the two, SNIFF, SNIFF, bragged about destruction.
The presence of the two trees shown on the MicroCenter side indicates an intent to replace with saplings. The ABSENCE of the ILLEGALLY DESTROYED TREES indicates total lack of interest in replacing.
AND THE CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL CONSTANTLY PRAISES THE DCR, ALONG WITH FUNDING OF ACTUAL DESTRUCTION AS presented in my October 26, 2020 letter, above.
The Cambridge City Council routinely lies to its constituents about environmental sainthood by YELLING AT THE OTHER GUY AND KEEPING THEIR OUTRAGES AS SECRET AS POSSIBLE, frequently denying responsibility for outrages accomplished by them or praised by them.
The plans for the Magazine Beach area are kept as secret as possible for obvious reasons. Here is a crop of a plan which was disclosed by the Charles River Poisoner in a city council meeting on February 25, 2019. It SECRETLY allocates responsibility for work.
3. Administrative Detail.
I do these blog posts in coordination with condensations on Facebook pages and in email mailings. The condensations are because the other publications are inappropriate for this level of detail. This level of detail very much would overload the other media.
I intended to pass on my prior post to the other lists, but my discovery of this proof of destruction makes that post too large to pass on without edit. This is the uncondensed version of the edit which adds to what will wind up on the edit condensation.
