These trees at the entrance to the historic property on Valletta Road in Seneca Gardens are threatened by the Bowman Field Proposal.

The LRAA wants to limit the trees to 70 feet above the runway at this distance from Bowman Field. These trees are 80 - 90 feet tall on land that is 10 feet higher than Bowman Field.

This photo taken during the winter of 2011-2012 shows  the size of the Valletta Road oaks with the historic house in the background.
This dawn redwood was planted in Seneca Gardens to replace canopy trees lost to age, ice storms, and wind. It is a fast growing tree that will grow into the new Bowman Field claimed airspace  in a decade or two (to the left and below).

This red maple in Kingsley is not yet very tall, but by the time it reaches maturity, it will be threatened by the Bowman Field project.

Just imagine its magnificent fall color when this tree is the size of the trees behind it.
