Pruning of the low-hanging red and Norway maple trees will provide a minimum of 15 feet of clearance over the highway and remove branches that have grown through the netting along the 10th fairway of the Maplewood Golf Course. The project is expected to take three days and be completed by Thursday, September 29.
