With work just beginning on the $10 million Redskins training-camp facility, city officials are already looking into what Mayor Dwight C. Jones called a “mistake” in the number of trees cleared from the site over the past week.

“I was taken aback to learn that more trees were removed from the site than originally anticipated,” Jones said in a statement released this afternoon. “This is counter to our commitment to protect the older hardwood trees at the west end of the property. We are reviewing the matter to determine what mistakes were made so that we can prevent further problems from occurring.”
