DAPHNE, Ala. (WPMI) A new report on the dying oak trees along Highway 98 in Daphne says there isn't enough evidence to determine what caused them to die.
Experts from the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries Pesticide Management Section tested the tree’s soil to see if there was any misuse or intentional spreading of herbicides or poisons.
Replacing one tree could cost $2,500 or more.
