  • WATCH: Cutting trees to open up Tacoma waterfront view

    A crew of five from Ranger Tree Experts Inc. of Lakewood were busy trimming down maple trees along Ruston Way Thursday morning, June 9, 2016. Micah Glastetter explained the trees are still alive. "We trim the branches down to the stump" to keep the weight off the treetops, Glastetter said. This relieves the pressure on the hillside and opens up the view of Commencement Bay for the homeowners living above.
