Santa Fe Indian School clears campus of most trees
Santa Fe Indian School in New Mexico cleared most of the trees from its campus as part of a controversial re-development plan.

The trees were removed from an area of campus where the school demolished more than a dozen historic buildings. The re-development began last summer but the 19 Pueblos that run the school haven't gone public with their plans.

The 115-acre school was transferred to the tribes through an act of Congress but the law bars gaming and states that it must be used for education, health or cultural purposes.
