We are deeply disturbed with the way the city and county has handled the illegal tree cutting in the Punchboard special design district, at the Tennent Gallery. The reporting of the situation makes the city look confused and unable to take action on the preservation of our mandated tree protections.
We were grateful to speak to Alexandra Avery and The Outdoor Circle to clarify what we need to do in the future to keep our island safe of the devastating loss of our trees. We are glad we can look to TOC to assist in a plan that can prevent future losses of this sort.
I was a past Board member and President of the Friends of the Tennent Gallery. During my tenure, we did programs to serve the community, using both the indoor and outdoor space. At one such event, the Alvin Ailey dancer Earnest Morgan, featured the trees in his performance. It was such a gift to have the shaded outdoor space available to shade the events we hosted.
