What really counts is whether or not the tree needed to come down. Is anyone 
suggesting that a tree in that condition should not be removed?

To be fair, a quick search provides the following information from a 
number of different news agencies.
 "At the recommendation of specialists from the National Arboretum, 
first lady Melania Trump called for a large portion of the tree to be 
removed this week."
The documents read in part:

*"The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly 
compromised and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial 
support. Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have 
fallen years ago. Presently, and very concerning, the cabling system 
is failing on the east trunk, as a cable has pulled through the very 
thin layer of wood that remains. It is difficult to predict when and 
how many more will fail."*


*The National Arboretum said in the documents obtained by CNN that if 
it were not for the particular history of the tree, it would have been 
cleared several years ago. "All measures have been used to save it to 
this point in time...While we cannot comment on the need to preserve 
the tree as long as it stands, we believe eventually, the tree will 
fail," the report said. *
