Update: The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District says it hasn't been "formerly contacted in the recent years about this issue, by either the township or Mr. Carey."

In an email to WVXU, the District writes, "We strongly advise against cutting down the trees in riparian zone as recommended by Mr. Carey, as the solution, if anything adding native trees to the riparian zone is scientifically proven to help with stream bank erosion (EPA 2014).
