New redwood park in Santa Cruz Mountains could come from Beall law

Clearing the way for what could potentially be the biggest open space deal in the Santa Cruz Mountains in years, Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed a bill that would streamline the sale of up to 6,500 acres of land owned by San Jose Water Company and to become a public open space preserve.

The bill would allow the sale of the land — which includes 1,100 acres of redwood forests and could easily eclipse $30 million in price — to the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District without approval from the state Public Utilities Commission. The commission regulates San Jose Water, and its processes are often bureaucratic and slow-moving.

Talks are still in the very early stages.

I'm wouldn't call this a "new redwood park" as it sounds like they want to add the land to Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve, and most of the parcels form an irregular shape along the edge of that park, but I suppose you could call it "new redwood park-land".

"Hacked by vandals shortly before Yule and left for dead, the Glastonbury Holy Thorn unfurled two wee leaves for Ostara."

Also, I did not know this: "Each time it looked sickly, cuttings would be taken and new sprouts started. The tree that was vandalized was not the original 2,000-year-old one, but a cutting—or clone, if you prefer—of it." My first thought was of the White Tree of Gondor, which is perpetuated down a single line from its extremely rare fruits. Wonder if Tolkien got the idea from the Thorn.

Imitate the magnificent trees
That speak no word of their rapture, but only
Breathe largely the luminous breeze.
