One of the things Lynn Batdorf wanted to do before he retired was to reopen the scenic overlooks at the Arboretum
When you look down Hickey Hill from the overlook, you see part of the DC skyline framed by tall pine trees. The opening is fairly narrow at the top of the hill and widens towards the bottom. Over the years deciduous trees seeded in along the edges and gradually grew into the opening. They both obscured the view, and interrupted the uniformity of the pine forest. Not so much anymore.
