What is it with Donald Trump and trees?

Remember the dust up at Trump's golf course in Palos Verdes? A stand of ficus trees was mowed down. Guess what? Mr. Trump is at it again here in DC. This time, more than 400 trees - elms, black locusts, and ashes - were chopped down at a Trump golf course in Virginia. Soil erosion along the riverbank was the official reason. I wonder if the locals here know about Mr. Trump's contentious history with southern California trees?
