Request To Cut Trees To Battle Birds At Airport
KOVR-TV Ch 13 (CBS), Sacramento (CA)
SACRAMENTO – A request to cut down trees near Sacramento International Airport is pitting environmentalists against the FAA. The Federal Aviation Administration is asking the county to cut down a nearby pear orchard and native oak trees because the birds who live in them are a danger to planes. But environmentalists say the trees are important to Sacramento and should stay.
The County Board of Supervisors is waiting for an environmental impact report to be finished before making any decisions.
Last year the airport had around 100 birds hit planes.
Editor’s Note: Here is another example of Enviromental Zealots who value trees more then human life. They need to be reminded that trees are are newable resource, people are not.
