Dozens of unsafe trees to be cut down in North Lawrence

Comment on this

A tree at 212 North Fourth uprooted during a storm on Oct. 14, 2017, crushed a pickup and damaged a neighboring house. The National Weather Service in Topeka said winds that may have been as strong as 70 mph caused the extensive damage in North Lawrence.

Forty-one trees in North Lawrence are coming down.

As much a part of the neighborhood’s character as its sandy soil, the old trees in North Lawrence tower stories above some of the houses. And this past fall, that became a problem.
