And you’ll have my Axe!

Oh, how I wish there were tree sitters near by. My axe sits unused and my chainsaw rests unspun.

As the battle over UC Berkeley’s oak grove near Memorial Stadium continues to unfold, a female tree-sitter has been extracted from the trees after biting an arborist.

According to Dan Mogulof, UC Berkeley’s executive director of public affairs, the woman was on a support line that two arborists were attempting to remove. The woman refused to get off the line after being asked to by the arborists and proceeded to bite one of the arborists in the arm, leading to her extraction from the grove. The arborist received medical attention following the incident.

The extraction of the sitter is the latest development in the day-long stand off between UCPD officers and tree-sit supporters that began when UCPD officers and arborists began cutting down tree-sitters’s supplies around 6:30 a.m. this morning.

The damn things are supposed to come down anyway, 18 months ago. Only the kindness of the local PD has kept folks such as myself who reside nearby from felling the damn things with the trespassing bastards clinging for dear life while gravity ensues.

    Actually, the local residents are mostly frat houses (or were when I was there in the ’90s) I’m sure they enjoy the spectacle.

    I’d be willing to fly out to CA from NC just to take part in the felling of those trees.

    The only way to deal with those idiots is to cut the trees down with them in it.
