About 400 trees will be removed to get the retired space vehicle from Los Angeles International Airport to it's final home at the California Science Center, where it will be on display, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trees that interfere with the shuttle will have to be removed, and some residents are upset. They are large beautiful majestic trees which provide shade and homes to birds and squirrels. If cut property values will drop as well.
Why not dismantle it in sections, and then reassemble it at the Science Center? That's what they did to Air Force One when they moved it to the Reagan Library.
We, the undersigned, call on the Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the city of Los Angeles to find an alternate way of transportation which will not result in trees being cut down.
