Tree removal companies hired by Peopleís Energy Cooperative trimmed or removed a number of trees along Fifth Avenue Southeast last week. Sean Hale, public works director for the city of Stewartville, said Peopleís Energy wants the trees trimmed so the branches donít interfere with power lines. If the trimming results in an odd-looking tree, some residents decide to remove certain trees entirely, Hale said.
