Albany - Albany leaders want to know why some trees across town where severely damaged by Water, Gas and Light crews.  Crews cut many of the limbs on trees along South Washington Street to make room for power lines. But the city's tree board, made up of scientists and arborists, say the crews improperly pruned the trees. Some may died because of it.

Arborists Dr. Katherine Kirkman will go before city commissioners Tuesday morning to recommend removing some of the trees and replacing them with new ones. That could cost up to $57,000.

Commissioners also want to find out why W&L didn't comply with the city's tree ordinance when pruning the trees.
