ALBION – A chestnut tree on Main Street in Albion was trimmed on Saturday by Greg Rosato, owner of Oak Orchard Tree Service in Albion.

Rosato was hired for the job by the Albion Betterment Committee.

Gary Kent, one of the directors of the Betterment Committee, was concerned the tree could become diseased with some broken branches exposing the tree.

Rosato gave the tree some clean cuts, which will allow it to heal faster.

Rosato also cut down a dead chestnut tree next to the one that was pruned. The trees are between KeyBank and Albion Agencies.

Kent would like to see the Village of Albion have a plan for preserving the remaining mature trees on Main Street and elsewhere in the community.
