Devastation– temporary or just long term?

I can’t help but wonder, weeks after the work was done, whether the US Bureau of Reclamation at Grand Coulee Dam has any intention of replanting the grove of trees they destroyed, or at least cleaning up the fire hazard they left behind on this south-facing hill.

I’m quite certain if they had bothered to ask the people use the adjacent walkway first, they would have found that he trees were appreciated sources of shade. That they added depth and balance to the landscape, even if they did have the appearance of struggling trees in a semi-arid desert.
