Former 49er’s Cherry Orchard Vandalized

A former San Francisco 49er is reporting a vandal plucked 2,000 cherry trees from their roots at his Brentwood orchard. Jeremy Newberry told the San Francisco Chronicle one of his colleagues found the trees destroyed last week. He said just five weeks ago he planted 4,100 new trees on his family’s 40-acre orchard, the Newberry Cherry Farm.
