*This removal of trees in forested areas will occur slightly outside of the Purple Line project's normal tree-clearing period of September 1st to April 1st in order to accommodate a request from the Rosemary Hills Elementary School for tree-clearing activity to occur before the school year to allay the school's concerns regarding safety and disruption. In response to the School's request, MDOT MTA has requested and received the Federal Transit Administration's authorization for tree-clearing to take place in August. http://www.purplelinemd.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=137&Itemid=258&lang=en
