'People were in tears': Tree loss for Stage 2 LRT upsets residents Social Sharing

By Hillary Johnstone, CBC News Ottawa, December 4, 2019

Some people who live near the western extension of Ottawa's light rail project say they're horrified by the number of trees that have already been cut down.

Tree and vegetation clearing has already started along the future route to Moodie Drive and Algonquin College, including on Connaught Avenue and sections of the Byron Linear Park.

(...)The city has said it will aim to plant two trees for every one that is removed during LRT development, expected to take until 2025 for this section west of Tunney's Pasture station.
