Even as we write, the tree-felling has started in Glen Canyon. First to go will be the line of grand old eucalyptus trees, over a century old, at the Elk Street entrance. This is despite the fact that the audience at the meeting on January 7th (by SF Recreation and Parks Department, District 8 Supervisor Scott Weiner, and the Glen Park Neighborhood Association) overwhelmingly opposed the tree-felling, and clearly thought SFRPD should find a way to work around this requirement.
Some of our photographers were out documenting the destruction, and we will continue to do so. Here is the first of the series.
[Edited to Add: Ron Proctor made a video, the first in a series.
