The East Bay Hills used to be filled with Old Growth redwoods. They collected moisture and had an incredible cooling effect on the planet. Does anyone realize what the Bay Area Eco-system used to look like? It is unfathomable the effect we have had. Let’s do our best to restore what we can as an example for the world. The long term plan should be to restore, and the public should support this goal. Native plants and species are best suited for our area.
