GALVESTON, Texas—Work crews began cutting down dying and dead trees in Galveston Wednesday morning. The trees, which are in public spaces like right-of-ways and in parks, are being removed as part of the city’s plan to dispose of vegetation damaged during Hurricane Ike. Previous estimates put that number around 10,800 trees.
