Prue Draper, a Cotati historian who has lobbied to save the tree, said she is encouraged SMART isn't going ahead with cutting down the tree.
An arborist's report in 2012 stated the tree is a chimera coast redwood that was planted in the right of way of the 1850's era Northwestern Pacific Railroad 45 years ago by a private individual as a landscape ornament, Mansourian said.

redwood forest, Mansourian said.
The arborist's report analyzed extensive pruning of the tree to meet safety clearances, Mansourian said.
The right of way in the area is 60 feet wide and will accommodate two tracks and a multi use pathway, Mansourian said.
"SMART is required to comply with Federal Railroad Administration safety clearances for safe train operations," Mansourian said.

"SMART will have to remove it. The City is willing to welcome it and water it," Draper said.
SMART said the tree is located at the base of a wall on private property within approximately 10 feet of the centerline of the second train track to be installed in the railroad right of way at the intersection of East Cotati Avenue.
The tree also would be in danger of being uprooted by winds within falling distance of the track, posing a safety hazard, Mansourian said.
The report concluded that even by removing all the branches and foliage on its east side, the tree's health would still be undermined by track construction and wouldn't survive at its present location, Mansourian said.
"SMART will consult with additional independent experts to verify the report's conclusions and determine if other options exist relative to the tree," Mansourian said.
"I have halted the process to take the time to bring in additional independent experts to examine and verify the analysis that was performed in September 2012 as part of our environmental permitting for this specific tree," SMART General Manager Farhad Mansourian said.

There are different opinions whether the tree can be transplanted, Draper said.
The 56 foot, chimera coast redwood tree is believed to be one of only 10 in existence, and one of only a few with its type of albinism. The tree, with white and green needles, also is unique because it contains two sets of DNA.
"It indicates that the subject tree receives no statutory protection under state or federal laws," Mansourian said.

The City of Cotati is willing to have the tree located in Helen Putnam Park, Draper said.
The 2012 report also said the documented number of chimeras is a "significant under estimation" due to lack of access to a large percentage of Air Max 90 Prm Curry
