The city of Decatur says that a tree along East Ponce de Leon will be removed due to a drainage problem at the site.

According to the city, the tree is located near a business at 232 East Ponce de Leon Avenue.

“In order to fix the problem, the sidewalk area has to be re-graded and, unfortunately, this will require removal of a nearby tree,” a press release from the city says. “Staff tried to design the repair without removing the tree, however in order to make the fix, the tree must be removed. Be assured that a replacement tree will be planted immediately. A root barrier will be included in the installation so that the tree will not damage the sidewalk.”
