The luminaries of the tree-sitting world came out to Arcadia yesterday to protest the chopping down of 11 acres of oaks and sycamores where the county wants to make room for excess Santa Anita Dam sediment. Veteran sitter John Quigley occupied a tree while frequent nature defender Darryl Hannah showed her support on the sidelines. But bold-faced names weren't enough--the sitters were arrested and the trees have already started coming down. [AP, previously]
