Several trees on public property have been cut down along I-75, and officials at the Michigan Department of Transportation are looking for the culprits.
Michigan Department of Transportation spokesperson Anita Richardson put up a sign after several trees were chopped down off southbound I-75 in Genesee County. Richardson says those trees serve a purpose.
"Some of the trees are there to actually aid traffic in terms of flow based on weather conditions," said Richardson.
Now, MDOT is asking for the community's help as they try to find out who cut these trees down.
"What we're hoping for is that people will take heed to the information and use it to contact their local transportation service center and request a permit if they feel a tree needs to be cut," says Richardson.
Drivers who saw the scene off the interstate have different views about it, depending on which way the tree falls if you will.
Meanwhile, Richardson says this isn't the first time MDOT has had to deal with illegally cut trees. But she's hoping people will get her message to ask before you cut.
If you have any information on this, call MDOT at 810-653-7470.
