Tree Removal and Replacement

The median of Fifth Avenue contains a number of the Darlington Oak species of tree, most of which have reached the end of their lifespan. Following the completion of the Fifth Avenue revitalization project, appropriate tree species and other vegetation will be planted in the median. All Live Oak trees will be preserved. Appropriate canopy trees, including existing Live Oaks, will continue to flank both sides of the street.

  • Remove diseased and decaying Darlington Oak trees from the median
  • Preserve and protect Live Oak trees, and increase the number of canopy trees along the sides of the street
  • Develop a revegetation plan to transform Fifth Ave. into a scenic linear parkway, connecting historic downtown to Greenfield Lake
