Adverse Effects of Tree Removals due to the Donaldson Run Stream Restoration Project

Arlington County has not evaluated the adverse effects of tree removals due to the Donaldson Run Stream Restoration Project.  Arlington County Parks and Recreation has used the i-Tree Ecosystem Analysis evaluate the benefits of the urban forests in this jurisdiction, https://environment.arlingtonva.us/trees/2016-itree-eco-study/. When asked via Freedom of Information Act request, the Department of Environmental Services admitted that it had done no such analysis of the negative effects that would result from the Donaldson Run Stream Restoration project. This is an indication of the indifference to the larger environmental context of this project by staff and other supporters.
