Gentlemen,

I wanted to let you know that the large, damaged Live Oak that we spoke about at the corner of Shore Dr. and Kleen St. was removed today. A Miss Utility ticket has gone in for both stumps to be ground, and we hope to be able to take care of removing them next week. I’m very sorry that this tree had to be removed due to extensive decay and structural issues, but I’m glad that removal was carried out without causing damage or harm. We’ll be planting a replacement live oak this fall, however it won’t be at this same site due to the proximity to the roadway at this intersection.

Best wishes,

Susan

We appreciate the work that went into trying to save this live oak.

Susan loves meeting people in the field to chat about live oaks, The City Tree, and any other tree for that matter!

  1. The effort to save? Hopefully that didn’t entail taxpayer money other than the removal. Wish it were one of the four I have in my yard. Sorry, not a fan of these trees unless they’re in someone else’s yard or better yet in the park. They’re extremely messy year round and kills the grass under the canopy.
