Surgeon fights to save one U-District tree - Seattle, WA

Surgeon fights to save one U-District tree:
A Seattle tree surgeon is trying to make sure one tree lives, and make a point about what he considers the city's flawed system when it comes to preserving urban canopy.

Michael Oxman has appealed the issuance of a master-use permit for a new University of Washington dormitory complex that would be located on the block bounded by 12th and Brooklyn Avenues Northeast, Northeast Campus Parkway and Northeast 41st Street. The project requires removal of the Brooklyn Building and several houses and has already resulted in the removal of eight trees considered 'exceptional' under a city tree-preservation ordinance.
