Portland residents in two separate neighborhoods engaged in civil disobedience today to stop ancient trees from being cut down by developer Vic Remmers.

A neighborhood group in Southeast Portland has banded together to stop the cutting of two old-growth trees near 41st Avenue and Clinton Street. The trees are on a property owned by developer Vic Remmers.
Last month, Remmers’ company, Everett Custom Homes, demolished the single home on the lot, a structure that was built over 100 years ago. Remmers plans to build three new houses on the lot.
To make room for the new development, two of the four old-growth Douglas Firs on the lot, including the largest of the four, were cut down on Saturday.
