Off the beaten path, Daniel Serralde spent many days in the last month behind bushes watching over the trees and its destruction. He has been told off by the construction workers several times for attempting to trespass.
Yet, he kept coming back to check on the trees until a couple weeks ago when there were none left to look at at the Mockingbird Estates site.
“I speak for the trees. That’s what I’m doing,” said Serralde, a neighborhood resident and environment advocate. “The trees are silent, but right now these trees need our help.”
