The University of California, Berkeley Memorial Oak Grove controversy, also known as Save the Oaks, arose over the planned removal of coastal oak trees in preparation for the construction of a new student athletic training center at Memorial Stadium. The university's actions sparked three lawsuits, as well as a tree sit-in that ran from December 2006 to September 2008, when the trees in question were finally cut down.
