Why Is TriMet Razing the Trees?

On or before September 15, the shade trees on SW Lincoln St. near Portland State University will be chopped down…to add a light rail line. If bulldozing the trees and reversing the urban beautification on SW Lincoln isn’t your idea of improving downtown, call Governor Kitzhaber’s office at (503) 378-4582. Tell him the TriMet board he appointed is making a grave and irreversible mistake.
