Decatur, Alabama streets getting new trees

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - With the help of horticulturalists and an arborist, the city of Decatur is trying to stay green in the traditional sense.

The city's Parks and Recreation department is battling to make sure that trees continue to line the citys streets.

Facilities and Operations Manager Paul Floyd says many of the city's trees are reaching a point where they're falling down.

Decatur's tree replacement program, called ReLeaf, will replace damaged and diseased trees while planting new ones.

Officials say the success of the program depends on the partnership between the city, businesses, individuals, and homeowner associations.
