Save the Trees on the Rosenberry Drive Levee, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

To be delivered to Hon. Jo-Ellen Darcy, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, object to the levee vegetation policy as currently implemented by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which would result in the removal of hundreds of trees along the Rosenberry Drive levee embankment in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The trees are not a danger to flood control, and they provide the city with significant and irreplaceable environmental, aesthetic, and recreational values. We urge you to reconsider the policy so that we may preserve our trees.
There are currently 2,567 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, blindly following a scientifically unsupportable policy, is calling for the City of Coeur d’Alene to remove hundreds of mature trees from the dike that follows the lake and riverfront around City Park and North Idaho College.

We're calling on the Army Corps of Engineers to reconsider the policy and allow the city to keep its trees.
