HUNTINGTON - A large tree was removed from 13th Avenue along Ritter Park on Monday morning.
The city contracted Mayo Family Tree Services LLC to cut down a dead tree in the 1100 block of 13th Avenue. Because of the tree's size, the city chose to contract the project instead of using city employees.
Trees removed by the city have the chance at being replaced in the spring. This past spring, Kotalic Landscaping of West Virginia planted 12 trees in holes left by removed trees.
