Cherry (blossom?) Trees Chopped in Woodley Park

“Dear PoPville,

Last week on either Wednesday or Thursday, the construction crews at the Wardman Tower on Connecticut Ave chopped down a good number (I would guess 10 or so) Cherry trees from around the building, right across from the metro station. I’ve always loved this building and the beautiful, green grounds around it. I understand obviously the ground needs to be torn up for construction and everything, but the razing of so many trees on one of the city’s main thoroughfares seems like a big shame, I hope they don’t do this to the entire grounds.”
