It is inconceivable to me that DOTD would even consider REMOVING TREES that have been deliberately purchased, planted and nurtured as they mature!!!
Our city’s roadside trees and green infrastructure are crucial and valuable to me and the citizenry of baton rouge and of course to the planet!!!
At the very least, DOTD must budget for the replacement of all trees to be removed as a critical element of the I-10 Widening project budget, not an afterthought! IF, some of them must be removed, then RELOCATE THEM!! Do not just cut them down!!!!
DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where possible in coordination with Baton Rouge Green.
