Trees come down on Cherrylawn Drive

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It has been a debated topic for months in a south Toledo neighborhood. The trees on Cherrylawn started to come down Tuesday.

It's part of a project that costs $1.6 million, and includes a new street, new sewer and water lines, and work to create better curb appeal. It also includes the removal of about 130 trees to put in sidewalks, which are needed for the project to receive state funding, and to improve pedestrian safety.

Some residents are okay with the work, but a few are very unhappy.

"I just think destroying the trees is horrid," said Sandra Kinker. "Putting in a new street we did not need, putting in sidewalks which we don't want, and killing the trees is – I can't even find an adjective for it. It's just devastating, it's awful."

When the project is done, new trees are expected to be planted.
