Oak Trees Being Cut Down Upsets Residents
Gainesville, Florida -- As a new plaza comes into Gainesville, many of the oak trees are going out.
The Celebration Pointe Project occupies nearly 140 acres at the intersection of I-75 and Archer Road.
It will include restaurants, stores and residential areas, as well as a new bridge spanning I-75.
The 170 million dollar project will also add a new four-lane primary access road with a mass transit lane.
The trees and tree debris that's being torn down are being sent to a local biomass plant to be utilized as fuel to create renewable energy for the community.
One resident doesn't see the need for this to be placed in the city.
One concerned resident Mark Goldstein says it’s fairly obvious that when you cut down the forests and the live oaks in an urban area you increase the heat and when you burn them, you increase the heat.
The first phase of Celebration Pointe is slated to open on or about spring 2016
