The Friends of Joaquin Miller Park group wants Oakland to trim invasive, dead, and hazardous trees to prevent a massive firestorm.
The group lost 600 native seedlings when vandals caused $8,000 in damages. But volunteers say they will replant and rebuild.
The proposed agreement between the city and the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust involves a woodsy five-acre section of Joaquin Miller Park.
The nonprofit Friends of Joaquin Miller Park is repairing the cascade, removing invasive plants, and plans to bring back cultural programming.
