Trees coming down

Decatur's Beautification Department cut down three trees at Fort Decatur that were deemed a danger to the public, Director Linda Eubanks said Thursday.

"They were dead," she said. "One of them only had 25 percent of its life crown. The recommendation is 50 percent. Drought affects them, too, over a period of time. One of them had a stress fracture."

The department plans to contract with a private company to remove two other hazardous trees. Lightning struck one in the 600 block of Gordon Drive Southeast.

The other tree scheduled for removal is at Sixth Avenue Southeast and Gordon Drive. Eubanks said it's falling apart.
