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.
