To prepare for an improvement project on Apple Street from 36th to 40th streets, some street trees will be removed in the next few weeks, weather permitting. The resurfacing and curb replacement project will begin in mid-March, but the trees must be removed now to comply with the Federal Migratory Bird Act.
About seven trees that are hanging over the curb or very close to the curb have been marked for removal. Some stumps will be ground down while others may remain for removal by the roadway contractor.
