Jeri Huber, 67, climbed a tree outside of her home to stop Oncor, an electrical company, from removing it, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Huber was briefly successful in stopping removal of the tree after she refused to descend, but the electrical crew said they would return with a restraining order.
This isn’t the first time Huber has met adversity while attempting to save trees. Six years ago, she climbed another tree with a BB gun to stop Oncor, an effort which was ultimately unsuccessful and earned Huber a temporary restraining order.
