Why are the trees only now determined to be dangerous?

The 6.7 acres were mostly empty when the city purchased the Airport in 1990. Since then, fast-growing invasive species such as Hackberry and Chinese Tallows have overgrown the area. 

The FAA recently renewed its focus on General Aviation airports and notified us of the safety requirement.
