A Western Illinois University professor is putting a monetary value on the trees around campus.
Older cities generally have some older trees. A city council member suggested Macomb be prepared for the replacement process by starting a tree farm.
Alderman At Large Dennis Moon said Macomb could use some city-owned land just east of Oakwood Cemetery to plant the trees.
"The newer part of Oakwood needs some trees. The older part is losing a lot of its trees because of storm damage and they are getting some age on them," Moon said.
