All Canopy Roads
Maintenance pruning and high risk
In early October Asplundh Tree
Experts will begin programmed maintenance along each of the
canopy roads. They will be under direct supervision of the
County's Canopy Road Coordinator. All trees to be
removed will be inspected and evaluated by the coordinator.
Other trees will receive pruning to elevate to the proper
clearance, or to remove dead and damaged limbs. The pruning
will begin on Old St. Augustine Road. One lane may will be
closed at times. In November and December Centerville Road and
Miccosukee Road will be worked on. Trees marked for removal
will be numbered and have an orange dot and an orange flag on
them. Trees being pruned will have an orange flag only.
Information about trees marked for removal is available at
Leon County Operations at 606-1400.
Miccosukee and Miles
Poor site distance looking east has
been a problem for years with large oaks blocking the view. This project will
move Miccosukee Road about 5 feet to the north allowing cars to be in front of
the trees before entering the roadway. Some earth removal will be required on
the north side and trees in that area are currently being mulched and fertilized
to mitigate the small amount of root loss expected. The beauty and character of
the intersection will be preserved, while vastly improving the safety.
