The trees that were scheduled to be felled along the Highway 12 corridor from Boyes Boulevard to Agua Caliente Road, have received another reprieve – albeit temporary – because the project needs to be re-bid.
The trees were supposed to be felled beginning last week, but that plan was put on hold until 1st District Supervisor Susan Gorin and Deputy Public Works Director Tom O’Kane had a chance to walk the route and look at the trees that were set to be felled.
During Friday’s walkabout, the county identified four trees that could possibly be saved, which meant the tree-cutting project had to be re-bid.
“Hopefully, we will award the bid again in a couple of days,” O’Kane said Tuesday.
But the county is up against a deadline of Feb. 15, when bird-nesting season starts.
