Edit to add: I am all for this and think it makes sense but it is a shame that some of the biggest trees downtown might be lost because of this.
Totally agree. It does look as if some of the trees will be preserved, but the primary tree canopy from Tremont to Arapahoe looks like it would need to be replaced- which really sucks. Though the overall canopy would be larger at the end of this project by 100 trees. Hopefully they will consider this and work to transplant if possible and replace with trees that have a trunk diameter greater then a pencil.
