The poor health condition of the almost 70-year-old trees along the convent's front drive, and safety concerns about falling limbs, have prompted the congregation to remove them before winter is over, said Moore...
But the row of 29 oaks that form an almost canopy over the drive won't be gone forever.
The Congregation of Divine Providence planted another row of Pin Oak trees behind the current trees in 1998, knowing the first trees planted in 1938 wouldn¹t live forever, Moore said.
The new trees have grown to between 10 and 15 feet tall already.
"They're not going to grow up overnight," Moore said. "But the driveway will look like it does again."
