Trees cut down on UA land will be re­placed

Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— School of­fi­cials say trees that were re­cently cut down on Univer­sity of Arkansas prop­erty will be re­placed as work con­tin­ues to widen and up­grade a road.

The North­west Arkansas Demo­crat-Gazette re­ports some trees along Thomas Avenue near Markham Road were re­moved Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day. The univer­sity plans to widen the east side of Thomas Avenue, in­clud­ing new power poles on the west side. Fayetteville will put in a wa­ter line and a side­walk.

Mike John­son, as­so­ciate vice chan­cel­lor of facilities, says an equal amount of caliper trees will re­place about 25 pine trees on the east side of Thomas Avenue.

The univer­sity owns the prop­erty, but some of the trees were within the city’s right of way and re­quired per­mis­sion for re­moval.
