The tree-sitter who ascended into the oak grove near UC Berkeley's Memorial Stadium just over a week ago decided to end his tree-top stay this afternoon at about 12:30 p.m., campus officials said.

Jeff Musgrave, 30, came down after a lengthy discussion with UCPD officers, according to Dan Mogulof, UC Berkeley's executive director of public affairs.

Tree-sit supporters said Musgrave left the grove after learning of a death in his family.

"We support his wishes to come down," said a tree-sit supporter known as "Citizyn."

Musgrave is being charged with trespassing, violating the court order which prohibits the public from feeding or supplying the tree-sitters, vandalism and with possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, Mogulof said in a statement.

According to Mogulof, Musgrave has been taken to Berkeley city jail and is expected to be cited and released.
