Albany - Southern Natural Gas Company has resumed clearing trees from its right of way in a Doublegate area neighborhood. People who live along MacGregor Court were upset when the Cyprus trees behind their homes suddenly started disappearing about a month ago.

Southern Natural Gas was clearing them out because the trees are on the right of way and could pose a problem to the pipeline. People who live in the area complained, saying removal of the natural buffer hurts their property values. The gas company stopped tearing the trees down until they could work out a solution with the property owners, but resumed clearing the trees this week.

Southern Natural Gas will replant Leland Cypress trees on the other side of the easement and will extend the privacy fence between homes on MacGregor Court and the St. Andrews neighborhood in order to accommodate those homeowners.
