1) Our city’s roadside trees and green infrastructure are crucial and valuable to me!
2) 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!
3) The trees add a beauty to our landscape around the interstate not only for us as residents to enjoy, but also to show our visitors to Baton Rouge area and Louisiana the beauty of our great State and city and surrounding area.
4) Trees are vital to our environment. They help cleanse our air and provide shade and shelter for native animals.


DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where, possible in coordination with Baton Rouge Green.
