As some protesters remain in Nevada City trees marked for removal by PG&E, supporters of the save-the-tree movement have set up a lemonade stand and are offering food and refreshments to the utility workers and police officers who are monitoring the situation.

PG&E said it needs to remove the trees as a safety measure and to prevent fires.

Out of 263 trees slated for removal, 100 of them are on private property, according to a city planner. The tree sitters, as they call themselves, said they’re opposed to the cutting down of 16 of the trees.

Earlier this week, demonstrators spent the night in trees to prevent them from being cut down. As of Wednesday morning, some people were still in the trees.
