The Zoning Board of West Orange, NJ, has begun to hear public comments concerning the application by Seton Hall Prep. They intend to cut down a substantial part of one of New Jersey’s remaining old forests including many old and historic trees in order to build more sports fields.
We were impressed by the eloquent pleas from the young people of West Orange. They saw the need to protect the environment which is their future. They also pointed out that planting some new “replacement” trees never does replace big old historic trees. They felt it was selfish to remove these many old and historic trees for the benefit of a few.
Many older residents of West Orange also spoke out for the trees. Some who live next to the property are already experiencing flooding and other water problems from the work that has been done there already.
We applaud the work of Sally and Kevin Malanga. They have been fighting for these trees for years!
We believe that when the day is done, the trees will prevail!
