Tree Removal Mitigation
Removal of some trees along the alignment of the Blueline to CRC will be necessary to facilitate the construction of the light rail track and stations for this important light rail extension. Every effort has been made to minimize the number of trees being removed, and replacement trees will be planted along the alignment, the CRC campus and at the new stations as construction is completed. In fact, RT will be planting 1.6 trees for every tree removed. To learn more about how tree removal is being mitigated for please view Chapter Four – Affected Environment in the Final EIR/S.
