Work to remove eight trees that were deemed to be a hazard on Macleod trail in High River has begun.

The trees are just west of Spitzee School between 4th St. S.W. and 7th St. S.W.

Engineering Inspector with the Town of High River Alexa Levair says the trees were inspected by an arborist when they did road work last year.

"Eight of the trees were determined to be at high risk," said Levair. "So those are the ones that are being removed."

The work will take place from May 16th until May 18th, from 8 a.m till 5 p.m. depending on the weather.

There are some parking restrictions in place while the work takes place.

The trees should be replaced in June with Bert Oak Trees and American Elm Trees.

A row of trees in the middle of the street in front of the Medicine Tree Manor are also going to be taken down, at a later date.
