Both streets were reviewed by the City of McKinney Arborist and have taken into account the location, size, and species of trees along Griffin Street and Pine Street in relation to the concept plan provided. This is very important since the root system and ability to withstand nearby construction for trees varies. The concept plan designates trees in the street/public right-of-way that will need to be removed during construction. Although we have made every attempt to minimize impacts to trees, in some cases it was not feasible in order to accommodate the proposed street and sidewalk. In the instance tree roots (for trees to remain) are impacted during construction, the contractor will be required to have certified personnel ensure that any required root pruning or treatments are done properly to ensure the long-term health of the tree.
