As I walk through Point Defiance Park, I see many trees uprooted by nature and then I come across cables slung across walking paths. These cables are wrapped around trees in the park and are being used to hold up the waterfront homes on Salmon Beach.

What part of Metro Parks’ mission statement does this fall under? And what is the environmental impact on the trees?
