A streetscape project in Lansdale, Pa. calls for the removal of trees. There will not be a barren landscape upon completion of the project, however, as a variety of trees will be planted to replace the original trees.

The tree removal is another major step for the borough's streetscape project, which aims to beautify, as well as update, Lansdale's outdated Main Street infrastructure.

''The work that has begun in the Madison Parking Lot will soon be visible along Main Street, as the streetscape project is now in full swing,'' said Matt West, president of borough council. ''One of the most visible changes to be seen will be the removal of the trees currently lining Main Street.''

Though a few residents have complained that the already-existing trees were just fine, West envisions a diverse, modernized group of saplings lining the busy thoroughfare through the borough.

''Instead of having one species of tree, as is currently the case, the trees will be replaced with a variety of species that are better suited for the harsh street-side environment,'' West said. ''Not only will a variety of tree species add texture to the landscape, it will also work to safeguard them against any potential blight that might hit over time.''

The loss of the current trees was unavoidable, as the removal and replacement of the Main Street sidewalks would have all but assured they would have had to been removed anyway.

Norristown, Pa.-based Scott Contractors Inc. is performing the streetscape project work.
