City takes down ancient tree

City takes down ancient tree

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The city of Albany had to block the 700 and 800  block of North Monroe Street Wednesday for a delicate tree removal.

They closed the street just North of West Society Avenue at 2:00 PM for an emergency tree removal, because the tree had become diseased, and was unsafe.

Motorists had to take detours for a time until the work was done, and the tree was removed.
