Jim Davis, a resident of Pinedale Road, a couple miles north of town off I-45, recently brought to our attention a safety issue regarding falling dead trees on the road . . . .
Davis added that “people are just using their chain saws to cut those trees that fall across the road and move them to the side.”
Most of these dead trees close to the roadway are on private property. The County has been engaged in removing dead trees from right-of-ways in the area.
Friday, we talked with Precinct #1 Commissioner B-J Gaines Jr. about the issue . . . .
Gaines said they may have to seek more legal advice on the issue in the future.
