City Addresses Concerns About Trees Along 8th Street Corridor
Some residents living along 8th Street in Altoona say trees planted by the city’s Shade Tree Commission nearly 30 years ago are cracking sidewalks and the foundations of some homes.
Bob Howard told council on Wednesday that the displaced sidewalks have become a major liability issue – and his neighbor was cited by the city for a problem caused by an overgrown tree that he didn’t plant. Howard is demanding the city fix the issue before someone gets hurt – or more homes are damaged.
Planning Director Lee Slusser says it’s an issue all across the city.
Slusser says many of the trees are Bradford Pear and Maple’s that aren’t designed for an urban environment. He says the Shade Tree Commission is aware of the issue and is working on a plan to bring some of them down.
