Park Service continues to hack away at trees at Gettysburg

Breaking News

Battlefield tree removal in Gettysburg is officially underway this year, with the clearing of 19 acres of woodland along the Baltimore Pike.

Non-historic trees were removed near Colgrove Avenue just south of town, adjacent to the new Battlefield Visitor Center.

The project is part of a multi-year plan to transform the 6,000-acre Gettysburg National Military Park to its Civil War-era appearance.
