Two large trees on the grounds of the new West Community Credit Union building will be saved in the construction of the new building, now underway. President of West Community Credit Union, Jason Peach, agreed to keep the trees.
Brentwood resident Barry Williams said he asked Peach to save the trees two years ago, and Peach, through his assistant on Thursday, said the trees won’t be touched.
Williams said one tree is a shingle oak and the other is a catalpa.
The contractors have laid down a steel grate for trucks to drive on. “God bless Jason and his contractor!” Williams said. “They placed this grate here to prevent the heavy trucks from compacting the trees’ soil – something that would harm and perhaps kill the trees.”
