No Longer a Tree City

When is a Tree City no longer a Tree City? How do you support a Bird Sanctuary without trees?
The City of Morro Bay through its sewer construction agents has removed 42 trees when only 25 were approved for removal on this project. Twelve trees have been cut and poisoned over the north bank of Bayshore Bluffs Park. Fourteen trees were approved for removal on Cerrito Place next to Cerrito Rock/Eagle Rock. A mature pine street tree was approved for removal on Fresno Street.
This is not to overlook the trees removed by State Parks inside Morro Bay city limits.
Where does it stop and when?
