The battle over trees on Nevada City property deemed a wildfire hazard to PG and E power lines finally came to a head early Friday morning, with three protesters arrested. Police Lieutenant Paul Rhode says they’d been asked by the utility to help coordinate the construction of a fence around Pioneer Cemetery, where about a-dozen trees are targeted for removal.
