Neighbors in NE Portland are coming together to try and save a giant Sequoia tree which has been slated for removal. The tree has created foundation damage to a nearby home, but only one homeowner in the area has advocated for it to be cut down. The city cut order is under appeal, and those who support the tree staying in its spot say the city has left them out of the process.
