Portola Valley: Clear-cutting of 18 trees
This stump and the one in the background are what remains of two of 15 significant trees felled without a permit within an open-space easement at 18 Redberry Ridge in Portola Valley. Many and perhaps all of the significant trees were oaks with diameters exceeding 11.5 inches at an elevation of 54 inches. Photo by Dave Boyce/The Almanac
