Main Street Trees Get Limbed & Trimmed

The Savannah holly trees on Main Street received a bit of a trim last week (right) and now you can walk on the sidewalks without ducking! At the Downtown Development Association's request, the limbs of the trees have been trimmed 7-8 feet above the sidewalk and the branches were shaped to give the trees a somewhat uniform appearance. The goals were to provide a more comfortable pedestrian experience but also to bring some of the buildings out in the open. One business commented that they have already received at least one new customer who did not know they were there prior to the pruning. Another observation: There's a clear view all the way down the sidewalk!
