WWI Memorial Trees in Danville to Be Removed

Danville officials are preparing to remove more than a dozen oak trees planted to honor World War I soldiers.

Recent storms felled four of the 14 trees.

Public Works director Richard Drazenovich tells media outlets that the trees are a safety hazard.

Each tree is more than 90 feet tall.

City officials plan to replace the trees. But Drazenovich says the replacements won't be oaks because oaks don't do well in constricted areas.

The memorial trees were planted in medians.

Crews will begin removing the trees this week. The project is expected to take three weeks to complete.
