In an effort to pres우리카지노erve trees that were part of the city’s first-class road system, St. Louis officials voted earlier this year to remove stables, stumps and wood piles.
According to documents posted on a website, the city said some stables should have been considered “National Heritage.”
The city has spent more than $700,000 since 2006 on greenhouses, habitat restoration and plantings of trees. The city has received a total of 5,824 trees from 9,826 volunteers who were encouraged to plant at the city’s greenhouses and greenbelt.
However, the trees have fallen victim to neglect, being torn down too quickly, damaged by road debris or simply not needed by the cities infrastructure. St. Louis was once home to about 500,000 trees.
Residents of Southport and University City who are angry that St. Louis officials are ignoring national heritage are planning to write to their elected leaders asking them to reverse the decision.
St. Louis officials say they will take the issue to the Board of Commissioners.
