Trees located in the footprint of the planned underground
annex on the Maryland Ave. side of the U.S. Supreme Court building will
be removed on Saturday, Sept. 6. They include a 10' Flowering Cherry,
a 38' American Beech, a 24' American Holly, and a 32' Red Oak. A tree
protection program has been implemented to preserve trees that are near
the planned excavation.
The construction of the underground annex is scheduled to be completed
