Chiara D’Angelo climbed up the tree early Monday and descended Tuesday evening.
KING-TV reports the city of Bainbridge Island says the young woman won’t be arrested for trespassing.
D’Angelo is a 2013 Bainbridge High School graduate studying environmental justice at Western Washington University.
The developer plans to cut about 800 trees for an 8-acre shopping center.
Visconsi Companies said Tuesday it respects the young woman’s right to voice her opinions.
In a statement, Visconsi says it is developing commercially zoned property after “an extensive and transparent public review process.”
