Smitty Smith of Fred’s Tree Service cuts limbs off a tree on North Street the afternoon of Feb. 7, 2014, in Beaufort. The tree, a laurel oak nearly 100 feet tall, is being cut down because the South Carolina Department of Transportation, the city of Beaufort and the owners of the property determined it is largely dead and poses a danger to drivers and the homeowners.
