Tree Removal/Excavation Plan

Twelve mature trees will be removed during the excavation. Their locations are shown in the diagram below. There are plans to replace the trees.


Both Church Road and Greenwood Avenue near the intersection of the two will be widened to accomodate the additional traffic lanes.  Excavation will take 33 feet of Curtis Arboretum along a 700 foot length of its Church Road perimeter and will take up to 13 feet along a 250 foot length of its Greenwood Ave perimeter.  The distinctive wall will be replaced in designated areas.
