Work is underway on a new rapid transit line in West Eugene. Lane Transit District is collaborating with "Friends of Trees" as it plans to take out about 200 trees in the EmX construction process. KLCC's Rachael McDonald spoke with Andy Vobora with LTD and Jennifer Killian with Friends of Trees. Rachael asked Andy how existing trees will be affected by the project.
Jennifer Killian is with Friends of Trees. Friends of Trees is having a work party at 7th and Almaden in Eugene Saturday morning. People are invited to help tear up concrete in preparation for planting trees. Contact Friends of Trees to participate.
