Solution offered for landscaping

Regarding the proposed landscaping at the Brunswick interchange: why buy seedlings? Give permission for the volunteers to dig up young trees that are growing too close to the road along the freeway between Brunswick and Nevada City. If they need more (very unlikely), they can check along the road by the fairgrounds.

There are many advantages to this plan:

1. The state already owns them, and they need to be removed anyway. This saves Caltrans money.

2. It would provide a natural mix of species and sizes.

3. The trees are already acclimated. This is where they grew, not in a valley nursery or up in the mountains.

To me this is a very logical solution.
