What a lovely preservation!
Carpinteria also has some record-breaking trees! There is a book about them! "The Trees of Carpinteria" written by the man who was in charge of restoring the "salt marsh" with UCSB!
(Wayne is his first name......he moved away!)
Perhaps one reason for these two places with magnificent trees is that they were "estuaries" with salt water and fresh water back and forth!
Our whole coast was once mostly estuaries....with abundant wildlife; incredible birds; and the best nature has to offer!Very few left! "The salt marsh in Carpinteria (saved by the "Sandyland owners who gave the entire property to UCSB!");
part of the estuary in Goleta......
A sliver (and I mean a sliver!) (better a sliver than completely obliterated) next to the Adamson house museum in Malibu..and a few others!
I hope we all do everything possible to save and preserve this magnificent tree! Yowzers! What a beauty!

Can we make appointments?
Just kidding about myself; (I have two full-time therapy dogs at home- the corgi mix team!)
But can people make appointments ? This is a wonderful service and very much needed!

Common Sense? What happened to "Common sense"?
The "seismic testing" boat from the "oil industry" instead of the "research vessel from Columbia! Why would anyone with a "brain" trust one over the other?
Is that the problem?
This is serious!

I am completely mystified that there was a "home invasion" armed robbery near my house; and there was no news coverage; no "reverse 911" for neighbors; and there was a serious "cover up" by our police and sheriff!
Because Mr> Nesbit is wealthy? He can stop the news?
The neighbors were "at risk"!! Why on earth is this coming out now? Three weeks after the fact?
I think the neighbors should have received a reverse 911 call with an "armed robber" and a "home invasion" in their vicinity!
what the hell is going on here??!!?
I am outraged! I live in Montecito.....and we hear of this 2 weeks after the fact?

I am disappointed beyond!
I will go to the meetings.
I will try to help! It is only we who care who will save what we have here!
and that is the truth!

Please,people. Use safety equipment. Use good judgement.Most of all..value your life. Take care of your friends.
This was, unfortunately, a mistake of judgement.
Don't do anything like this.
Use judgement; use safety equipment; and value you and your friends's lives. Don't let friends hike without safety equipment. It is the same as "don't let friends drive drunk" or "don't let friends text and drive"
Same thing! Encourage your friends to be careful.
what a sad story!

Oh what a ridiculous statement. Specious.Our urban environment is low-lying and preserves trees and keeps our city from becoming "canyon country" And we have to continue to protect those trees and the height limits and the nature pathways. Our ideal is pretty close to what we have.....but we have to defend it! Limited density in the urban part of our city.....large acreage in the outlying areas......and businesses which do not pollute.
(technology is one that is very good, for the most part at that)Santa Barbara had the first zoning ordinance west of the Mississippi. BRAVO!!! Let's keep up the good work!
