NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The work to remove 10 cherry trees from downtown Nashville
will begin early Wednesday morning.
The trees have to be removed so a stage can be built for the NFL Draft.
Initially, 21 trees were scheduled to be removed but public outcry prompted city officials to come up with a new plan. Thousands of people signed a petition over the weekend, demanding the trees not be uprooted.
The ten trees will be transplanted feet away along 1st Avenue North in downtown Nashville according to the Superintendent of Horticulture for Metro Parks and Recreation.
