Petition Created to Save Century Old Trees in Snook

By  | 

There's still hope for some century old trees in danger of being torn down in Burleson County to make way for a planned section of FM 60.

An online petition has been created to help stop that process.

Regina McCrudy says she's upset because some of the trees on her property in Snook are estimated to be two to three hundred years old.

The Texas Department of Transportation wants to buy about six acres of land from McCrudy to build the new highway.

Bob Colwell with TxDOT says the trees will be in the path of the the new two-lane, divided highway that's scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2016.

Colwell says they are doing what they can to save as many trees as possible, only four will be taken down but family members are looking for support.
