Protesters in oroville have made it clear.. they are not giving up when it comes to the battle with PG&E over 13 trees standing outside the old Oroville cemetery.
According to PG&E, the trees are too close to a gas line and need to be removed but the protesters have been blocking the trees almost daily.
Yesterday, a Butte County judge granted PG&E a temporary restraining order against the protesters.. so they can continue with the tree removal.
Bill Bynum says personally they will have to arrest me before they cut down the trees. There are people who are committed and passinate about hanging on to these historic trees.
According to the Save Oroville Trees spokesperson.. the judge also advised PG&E to work with the protesters on the situation.
Bynum says he is still optimistic they can save the trees.
