During one of the public hearings for a proposed project on U.S. 189 in Provo Canyon, one of Bob Redford's cronies gave us a sneer and said, "I'll bet you people wouldn't even know a tree if it landed in your lap!" Upon which my buddy pulled a card from his wallet, "Here's my Sierra Club membership - where's yours?" The accuser slunk away sheepishly.
Now, a few years later, it's interesting to see that the Oregon DOT is one of the leaders in the green movement!
Enjoy your Arbor Day!
