Schools trees on the chopping block a second time
There are plans to remove two oak trees at the edge of St. Albans High School's Crawford Field because school officials say they're causing problems. The trees were already rotting, but the storms that hit the area this summer created hazards over U.S. 60. The trees also hang over parts of the end zone on the football field and can create a risk for the football players. These are the trees that were almost removed in 2007 to make way for bleachers and other upgrades to Crawford Field. There was a court protest then and the school board let the trees stand. There could be another protest this time. Stay tuned.
