Smyrna Highway Department Hauls Tree from Village
Earlier this year, the Village of Smyrna decided to take action and remove a towering, old Maple that had been dead for many years. This large, rotting tree located on the corner of Academy Street and Route 20 was a potential danger to anyone passing by.
The Village hired a contractor to safely take the tree down. Working closely with the Village, the Highway Department used their equipment and skills to remove and dispose of the huge remnants.
A job well done by all!
