Numerous trees near Capitol set to be removed

OLYMPIA -- The recent snow and ice storm in western Washington damaged numerous trees at the Capitol and surrounding areas, including some historic ones that are more than 100 years old.
More than 20 trees are set to be removed, including a nearly 120-year-old beech tree in Sylvester Park in downtown Olympia.
Other notable trees to be removed include four Yoshino cherry trees that were part of a grove planted in 1976 for the bicentennial celebration and three black locust trees that are of undetermined age. The state capital saw more than a foot of snow fall last week, followed by an ice storm.
The Department of Enterprise Services, which manages the Capitol buildings and grounds, is still assessing the damage and warned that the number of trees marked for removal could increase.
