As pretty as downtown was, someone, and I wish I knew who, authorized the cutting down of our beautiful trees around the square. The brick sidewalk is okay, but it is stupid to remove the trees. Again went back to naked streets and sidewalks. It was ugly when I first moved here many years ago, and I hate to see it go back. Let's chuck out the idiots who made these decisions!

The root were destroying the sidewalks. I believe new trees will be placed in containers of some sort when all is done.

Surely it was OK'd by the Tree Board. Hash phoned in on used to be Wimberley program this week and explained new trees are coming to the tree boxes designed to cause the roots to grow downward to protect the building foundations and sidewalks this fall. August is not good tree transplanting weather. Survival would be iffy.

Truthly, either your retared or you can't read a newspaper. The tress were tearing up the sidewalks with the root system making the sidewalks a liability to the city plus and eyesore to downtown. The trees WIL BE REPLANTED with native to Arkansas tress that don't have a root system that grows out and tears up the sidewalks. The Bradford pear trees are pretty but they stink when blooming and are ugly in the winter!!

The wrong trees were planted in the wrong location. Also one should not plant trees above or below utility lines. 60 foot tall trees should not be planted only 6 feet from buildings is also been a problem. These trees block out the street lamps which leave the sidewalks dark---not good for safety and security.

Shouldn't they have had the foresight to plant the "correct", native trees to begin with?? Lol, thats right, these ppl running around blowing all this money dont have any foresight. Ex: Greenspace beside old city hall, tons of money, and nothing has ever been green, its a crumbling mess. Ex: Crosswalk at College, gee who thought it was smart to plant trees in a high traffic area with pedestrians crossing?? Dumbasses. Wouldve stayed that way too if an Entergy truck hadnt hit one of em. I could go on and on. Vote Hash Out. And Get that idiot Mark Smith off the damn water board while your at it!!

You are 100%. Also, some of these trees attract birds that leave their waste on cars sidewalks etc- nasty. The trees were planted and neglected. I hope all the oversized, lopsided trees are removed and replaced with small trees or shrubs, or planters. You certainly should not plant 60 foot tall trees 6 feet from structures. Also a lot of these trees wre planted near intersections and create vision hazard- some block out the stop signs with branches- Mayor/Council are you reading and strategizing??

Thanks for the input on the trees. Why brick sidewalks, and why a "tree board"? Shouldn't those who own the buildings make their own choices, or is this again, another "you must" situation?

Please don't listen to the Mason's any more because they were involved in much of this- look at all the crepe myrtle mess they created by planting and then ignoring and not maintaining.

One of the things you have to do when you vote in a 'civic improvement' is also to allocate money for maintaining it.

Can't allocate funds, that money had to be allocated for the big salary of the man over the tree board

Threatened the church with a lawsuit when building that sidewalk and a tree had to be moved big roots in the way!! Thats their property they pay taxes on and didn't want members of their church tripping and getting hurt !! Mason really had his nerve!!
