Feds: Watergate trees can go - Washington, DC

Feds: Watergate trees can go | Liz Farmer | DC | Washington Examiner:
A federal panel ruled that the National Park Service should remove trees it planted between the Watergate complex and the Potomac River, provided that the residents protesting the trees pay for the work. At its monthly meeting Thursday, the commission said residents should give the park service funds to transplant the existing sycamore trees, and purchase and plant shorter sycamores near the Watergate. Residents fought the trees after they were planted in 2009, contending the trees would eventually grow so tall they would obstruct their view of the river and lower property values.
