Dear Colleagues,

John Quigley (whom you may know as Executive Director of Earth Day LA) is

presently sitting in a magnificent 400 year old oak tree in Pico Canyon,

just outside Santa Clarita, to keep it from being cut down to widen Pico

Canyon Road to serve a 279-home subdivision being built in Supervisor

Michael D. Antonovich' s district of unincorporated LA County.

John is working with the Santa Clarita Oaks Conservancy and Santa Clarita

Organization for Planning and the Environment (SCOPE). His important

action has been featured on Channel 9 News and in the LA Daily News. You

can see an article with a wonderful picture of John high in the tree at the

following link:

by writing or calling:

1. Mayor and City Council of Santa Clarita (see addresses and sample

letter below).

2. County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich and the other Supervisors (see

Thank you for your action on behalf of all the ancient trees of Southern

Excerpt from Daily News:

Oak tree may be doomed

By Heather MacDonald

Staff Writer



STEVENSON RANCH -- Desperate to prevent a 400-year-old oak tree from being chopped down, an environmental activist scaled it Friday and prepared to sit there until a deal is reached to save the majestic tree.

Alerted by members of the Santa Clarita Organization for Planning and the Environment about the potential destruction of the heritage oak tree, John Quigley of Pacific Palisades climbed the massive tree just before 7 a.m., hours after an agreement protecting the tree on Pico Canyon Road expired.

"I'll be up here as long as it takes," Quigley said, via a walkie-talkie from about 50 feet above the ground. "This tree is older than any of us, and there's no reason for it to be cut down."

Down below, other environmentalists protested plans that call for the tree to be cut down to expand Pico Canyon Road. After tying yellow ribbons to the orange mesh fence surrounding the oak, they urged drivers to honk in support.
