City replacing some downtown trees


The city of San Marcos is replacing 15 trees in the downtown area that were in poor condition. The old trees, planted several years ago, were cut down Sunday and will be replaced in about two weeks.

The city will plant wax myrtles, desert willows, and red bud trees, native Texas species, in the next two weeks, according to Rodney Cobb, Director of Community Services.

Anyone know why the trees that failed – failed?
Just curious.

Charlie, Sorry I don’t have an answer for your but I assume there is more in the offing about these trees. The Downtown Association and the Main Street Advisory Board had a joint meeting the other night at which the trees came up and a spirited discourse followed.
