This fast track authority should absolutely not be approved. This proposal only considers the supposed benefit to the private business, but fails to appreciate the environmental and social benefits of trees to the public. Mature trees provide critical ecosystem services and social benefits that are not easily replicated. VDOT should focus on ways to keep more trees, not eliminate more trees.
