Arlington holds single homeowners to strict standards and yet seems to give builders a blank check when it comes to building codes and associated rules. Arlington also talks a good game about being a green community, and yet we see over and over that when commercial interests come into the picture, the "green" goes out. We need a healthy tree canopy as well as preserving such specimens as this one. Shame!

Save the trees. They are more important than another McMansion and they have lived longer. They deserve every preference accorded the wisest elder.

This tree offers more value to Arlington than any extravagant single family home.

I am a member of the Arlington Tree Action Group and I support the group's objectives of preserving Arlington's urban forestry. I endorse the arguments set forth in ATAG's news release about the Dawn Redwood: https://arlingtontreeactiongroup.org/sample-page/atag-press-release-at-risk-state-champion-tree-in-resource-protection-area/

One of the most wonderful attractions of the neighborhood where this dawn redwood is located is the (so far) unspoiled natural environment, which is threatened by the proliferation of houses on smaller and smaller lots. Cutting down an irreplaceable tree like this one would take away one of the reasons why people want to live in the neighborhood, not to mention the damage that removing it would do to the nearby stream valley. Please don't allow this travesty to happen!

save the redwood tree and find another place to build 2 more houses and let the people enjoy this treasure that can live to be 600 years old

Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world's wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter.

The established canopy is essential for sustaining the balance of our air quality and wildlife. It must be kept. Destroying it would be a foolish mistake.

There are ways that the developer can achieve his result and take account of an irreplaceable environmental, aesthetic living asset. It is a question of Arlington finding some balance with nature as it evolves. Balance is not simply cutting everything down and starting again with stick trees.
