Subject: [CPEO-MEF] BIOTA: Concord Naval Weapons Station tree thinning
Environmentalists oppose naval facility tree thinning

CONCORD, CA -- After years of neglect, the federal government has begun thinning the trees at the Concord Naval Weapons Station. It is a project some say poses a major threat to the many species of birds that inhabit the area.

Environmentalists and some neighbors say the thinning of eight groves of eucalyptus and pines at the Concord Naval Weapons Station could not come at a worse time. It is work being done by the U.S. Forest Service in consultation with federal wildlife experts.

"It looks like we're getting lip service here concerning the environmental issues and concerning the nesting of these birds, the damage that might occur, either their injury or their death because this is the height of the nesting season," said neighbor Pete Stuart.
