Main Street with a difference

Anyone travelling through Clinton these days may notice a big change in front of the Village Office and Museum. Two large fir trees that had been trimmed numerous times in the past were removed last week.

BC Hydro had ordered the trimming in previous years as the trees had grown into the hydro lines. The side next to the highway was drastically trimmed leaving all the weight on the side next to the two buildings.

In an effort to prevent the trees from coming down onto the buildings council made the decision to have the trees removed. BC Hydro was contacted and they agreed to take them down. Village Public Work staff cleared the brush and logs from the lot.

The removal of the trees leaves a blank slate for landscaping plans. Watch for changes in the spring.
