A green layer of spray covers the land where 184 Monterey pines grew at the Gill Tract of Albany. Wildflowers and grass are expected to grow out of the mixture of seeds and mulch. The controversial tree-removal, started in late January, has been completed by workers contracted by the University of California.
Staff of the University said that they had no plans to cut down the remaining trees due to funding shortage. The future use of the land, which is unclear, remains contentious between the University and the City of Albany. Photo by Linda(Linjun) Fan.
