A Tree Grows in Richmond


Style’s got the details on an elm tree on Plum Street that is causing lots of issues:

[An] ordinance was introduced by 2nd District Councilman Charles Samuels March 8 on behalf of David Robinson, who says his house at Floyd Avenue and Plum Street has been damaged by the roots of the city-owned elm. Samuels’ ordinance would require the city to get rid of the tree despite a city-wide moratorium on tree removal. It costs as much as $2,700 for the city to remove a tree. . . .

Samuels’ ordinance is scheduled for discussion again by council on April 26.
