MANY OAKS ARE DYING

Tree Trouble Study Underway

Business leaders want to find out what's killing many of the majestic live oak trees along the coast. The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce announced a tree preservation project today.

The project includes a study that will look at the impact of things like development, disease, and drought on dozens of centuries old oaks.

Community and business leaders went on a field trip today, to learn more about the tree troubles, and to help kick off the program.
