Park Road residents fighting for trees - CharlotteObserver.com:
Park Road residents are fighting to preserve trees 100 years old or older that line the busy road and are in danger of being destroyed.
The city of Charlotte plans to install a sidewalk there.
'It provides a canopy for the entire road between Sunset and Poindexter,' said Dan Hopkins, one of the neighbors trying to save the trees. 'My tree in my front yard will be gone. I have two more in the backyard. It will completely change the aesthetics of my house and value of my house.'
