Question: Why is it not a good idea to PLANT TREES on an earthen embankment dam?

Answer: Because it is undesired and illegal in just about EVERY STATE in these United States
.

MASSACHUSETTES






NEW YORK






NEW JERSEY






The only place where you can find people that believe it's acceptable to plant trees (or keep invasive vegetation) on earthen embankment dams is in the "state of confusion" that exists on Facebook these days...

In the "metaverse".






And that should be cause for alarm in ALL communities along the Erie Canal

EXPERT WITNESS RECANTS ORIGINAL COURT TESTIMONY
PROFESSOR DONALD GRAY P.E. STATED

I donít know of any earth dams where woody vegetation was purposely planted or allowed to grow on a face of the dam.

SEE https://eriecanalfacts.wordpress.com/2018/04/19/testimony-in-question-vegetation-on-dams/

ALSO
Read another report from Dr David Rosgen, hydrologist.
