    Great article, thanks for the coverage of this important issue! One important note – the Corps is not responsible for the levees, the County is. The Corps simply runs a cost-sharing program that requires tree removal for eligibility. Should the Corps change that program since its blatantly in conflict with the Federal Endangered Species Act and the Clean Water Act? Yes. But – the County does not have to play this game. Nothing stops them from pulling out of the program. In addition to contacting the Corps, contact King County and tell them to make the right decision. How many trees will be cut? How much will it all cost?? Its on the last page of this link.
