'Save the palms': Wellington residents putting up signs to save the neighborhood's palm trees

WELLINGTON, Fla. - Signs are going up in a Wellington neighborhood hoping to save nearly 600 palm trees.

The trees were supposed to be cut down last month, but the Village Manager delayed the decision after numerous complaints from residents.

The issue will now be brought up in front of the Village Council. A spokesman for Wellington says he believes the issue will be discussed on March 25 but that date has not officially been set.

The trees, which cost $40,000 a year to maintain, were supposed to be replaced with lower maintenance trees.
