Work Underway on Apartment Building, But What About the Trees?

Construction is underway on the Garfield Park at Clarendon Village luxury apartment complex, at the corner of 10th Street and Washington Boulevard in Lyon Park.

Workers in heavy equipment have been busy laying large metal beams while clearing debris from the site, which used to house a CVS Pharmacy. But at least one neighbor is upset about one type of “debris” that’s awaiting removal.

Here’s an email we received this afternoon:

bozutto construction just bulldozed out trees on the property. how green is arlington, this is happening everywhere there is development and re-development. got news for arlington, you CAN’T be green without trees. you watch and see how many dead squirrels, raccoons and possums will be on the nearby streets today and tomorrow because of removing the trees.
