JUST IN: Emergency Tree Work Closes Church Street in Vienna

Church Street is currently closed in Vienna for emergency tree work, the town announced on social media.

The town announced this morning that Church Street between Glyndon Street and Beulah Road will be closed today (Tuesday) for up to three hours starting at 9 a.m.

The town also said that “several other tree and maintenance projects will impact travel this week,” including:

  • Removal and replanting of trees in the Nutley Street median tomorrow will temporarily close the southbound lane closest to the median
  • Mulch spreading in flower beds will close a lane on Maple Avenue from 6-10 p.m. tomorrow
  • Tree removal will close westbound lanes on Maple Avenue between Follin Lane NE and East Street NE from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Friday

Town Arborist Gary Lawrence said that the work on Nutley Street tomorrow will include the removal of 11 “dead or severely decayed” trees between Marshall Road and Maple Avenue.

The work is expected to take three days ahead of replanting on March 9, which will take approximately four business days.

“The trees being removed are lindens and one Bradford pear,” the arborist said. “The species being replanted include willow oaks, lacebark elm, and pistache. These trees have proven to be highly tolerant of environmental conditions similar to those along Nutley Street.”

As for the work tree removal on Maple Avenue on Friday, the town plans to take out a black locust tree that has “an extensive crack at its base, which has compromised its structural integrity,” according to the Facebook post.
