Tree Removal: Willow Drive

Post Date:06/19/2017 5:12 PM

A tree on Willow Drive (across from University Place) near Connor Drive was irreparably damaged in the recent storms posing potential risk to people walking in the area. The tree is scheduled to be removed on Tuesday, June 20.

The Town’s arborist inspected the tree to see if anything could be done to preserve the tree. The safest course of action is removal.

Lane closures may take place near Willow Drive and Connor Drive during the removal of the tree.

Tree City
The Town of Chapel Hill, which has a strong commitment to sustainability and interest in decreasing the urban “heat-island” effect, regrets when trees must be replaced. Our Tree Protection Ordinance identifies tree canopy as an important community value. We are proud that this year marks our 18th year as a Tree City, a designation from the national Arbor Day Foundation. Visit our Trees webpage at
