The trees that will be affected by the I-10 project are extremely important for the following reasons:
1) Interception of significant aments of storm water each year
2) Collection of greenhouse goes and pollution (over 1,000 lb.)
3) Scrubbing almost 240,000 lbs. of CO2 in the air each year
Therefore, the planning of this project should include appropriating necessary funds to replace the removed tress at a ratio of no less than 3 to 1 to provide ecological and environmental recovery from these natural resources.


DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where, possible in coordination with Baton Rouge Green.
