Today please call City of Oakland Arborist, Mitchell Thompson (phone is 510-615-5568 ) and demand that he tell his dept. of Public Works to STOP flooding the park square with water to saturate and flood the soil which will cause the ancient oak tree to drown due to lack of oxygen to the root system. Over watering the soil can also cause fungus to grow on the tree and kill it as well. Store from yesterday 12/7/11 in the East Bay Express is here…. http://www.eastbayexpress.com/92510/archives/2011/12/07/frank-ogawa-plaza-flooding-threatens-historic-oak-tree
You can read about tree care in this article so you can articulate your concern to Mr. Thompson. Thanks and please share this on your FB page as well : )
LONG LIVE OCCUPY OAKLAND !!
