Why are workers cutting down trees behind the county’s Government Center?

Ashley Withers

Q. What’s going on behind the 911 Call Center building at the Government Complex off Racine Drive? In the wooded area behind the building and across the ditch from Gold’s Gym and The Home Depot, work crews have been in there for days cutting down several trees. Why?

A. Drainage maintenance is being done in two areas at the back of the Government Center, according the county spokesperson Charles Smith.

The City of Wilmington Stormwater Services is doing some drainage ditch maintenance in the area behind Home Depot. Several trees had to be removed in order for them to maintain the ditch, Smith said.

New Hanover County is also doing some drainage work on county property, so the parking area behind the Government Center can drain. This work required a few trees to be removed., he said. There is also some maintenance work being done to the pond/basin at the rear of the property.


Are any permits required to cut down trees on my property?

Why were all those trees planted on Military Cutoff Road and who paid for them?
