The city will cut down the 25 jacaranda trees lining Rose Drive and Bastanchury Road in about two weeks, said Roy Stephenson, the city's public works director. Council members voted 4 to 1 last month to chop down the trees after receiving complaints from residents that the jacaranda flowers littered their yards and choked their spa filters.

Stephenson said his staff is looking for replacement trees. Residents had told the council that they did not want deciduous trees that would shed leaves in their yards. They said they would prefer evergreens.
