  • WHAT IS IT? Two aged trees that no longer are a danger to people on 12th Street NW, near the southern shore of Meyers Lake. They’re no longer there after Stark County Engineer Keith Bennett found out about the hazard.
    HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN GOING ON? Quite a few years, looking at the size of the trees. Canton Township arborist Dick Drake noticed the trees and marked them with fluorescent orange paint. One was an oak tree that was dead; the other, a cherry had root rot and also was likely to fall, according to Drake.
    WHAT DOES IT MEAN?  Once he learned about their condition, Bennett agreed to remove the trees. They came down the same week. Bennett said his people try to spot such things, along with potholes and the other problems the department must address.
