Have you considered starting a petition on www.change.org ...? I know I'd sign and wide exposure might rattle US Bank and its city cronies.

I'm definitely considering this. Since no one in US Bancorp apparently disagreed with Alan Allbritton's "cut them down" crusade, I have to assume that the national corporation is anti-tree and anti-baby birds.

Like you said, it certainly would be interesting to see how many people in this country hold the same view about beautiful large trees and migrating birds.

I suspect that when potential and actual US Bank customers are made aware of the tree-hating attitude of US Bancorp, the corporation will find that it hasn't made a wise policy decision.

Partly my Change.org decision depends on whether the last two trees remain standing. If the chainsaws come out again, I'll definitely spend a good share of my retired days working to make sure that this story is spread nationally to the greatest extent possible.
