"RockTenn supports the safety of the community and is planning to remove the identified trees in the area near county Road 214 in the next week to 10 days. RockTenn has been working with the St. Johns River Water Management District, who holds the conservation easement on the property to gain permission to remove the identified trees. After reviewing the conservation easement and the selected trees they have granted permission to remove the trees. Normally, sustainable forestry practices mandate that the tree removal occur when the ground conditions on the tract are drier. However, we will begin the tree felling as soon as possible. The trees will be felled and will be pushed to a safe distance from the road until such time that ground conditions allow for their removal. Then the site will be restored as appropriate."
