The trees go just beyond the trees you see. The routes have also enfested the ROW, and compromised it. You can't just cut them down, and they are gone. All the roots have to be dug out. If not, as the roots rot over a few years, they would create sinkholes in the rail line. Roots also compromise concrete structure that weren't designed to have trees on it. All the bridges are most likely compromised from 50+ years of trees growing on them, which weren't designed for tree roots.
