Innes Street trees will be replanted next week

SALISBURY — The trees that lined Innes Street downtown will be replaced early next week, city grounds maintenance supervisor Brad Gorman said Thursday.

Trees along Innes Street were removed in May to allow for sidewalk renovations.

Gorman said crews will be replanting on West Innes Street on Tuesday and will move to East Innes Street on Wednesday.

He said parking spots on Innes Street will be closed while the replanting is taking place.

“But we would take the cones up as we planted,” Gorman said.

Replanting will be done during normal business hours.

Gorman said he has notified Innes Street businesses of next week’s replanting.

The new trees will be lacebark elms. The trees that were removed were zelkova trees.

Gorman said the city’s arborist and landscape architects recommended lacebark elms for the replanting.

They will be provided by Godley’s Garden Center and Nursery.
