The Warner Robins Housing Authority is removing trees throughout the T.J. Calhoun Homes community this week.
Twelve trees are being removed on Iverness Avenue, three on Galan Way, one on Green Street and eight on Sunstede Road, said Sheryl Frazier, executive director of the authority. The trees were disrupting sewer lines in the community, she said.
“We realize that’s a lot of trees, but one of the major issues up there was the sewer drain lines,” Frazier said. “We will be replacing the trees but with a different type of tree that over the years won’t grow as large or have as many roots.”Tree removal began Monday and will continue three or four days, she said.
The work is part of several renovation projects paid for with more than $800,000 the Housing Authority received in federal stimulus funds.
