Trees Chopped along Main Street

The city said the replacement trees will be more suitable for the environment.

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- More than a dozen trees have been cut along Main Street in Little Rock, but some neighbors and business owners don't care for it.

Crews chopped down the tress over the weekend.

City leaders said they will replace the trees with ones more appropriate and able to conserve water to prevent flooding.

Nearby business owners said the trees blocked some of the heat and created a beautiful scenery.

"It's nice to have a Main Street with trees. It looks like a Main Street. Now they're taking them down. It's going to be all buildings and brick,"

City leaders say some new trees should be planted within the next six weeks, weather permitting.
