Response: DOTD will be replacing trees […]

Comment: BR’s Interstate system is critical and in need of improvement, however any planned widening efforts must include replacing the trees and shrubs that will be adversely impacted. Trees are critical not only to the artistic appeal for visitors, but they are essential to a healthy community by replacing the carbon monoxide in the air […]

Comment: The trees planted by Baton Rouge Green over the past 20 years along the Interstate system in Baton Rouge are the only thing that sets Baton Rouge apart when it comes to beautification seen by thousands of people daily.

Comment: As a member of the Baton Rouge Green Board, I am writing to implore LADOTD to account for and replace all trees removed during the I-10 widening project.
