Tangipahoa Parish government is using the cooler months to pilot a project on the south end of the parish, a news release from Tangipahoa Parish President Gordon Burgess said.

Burgess said the parish is sub-contracting with Foster’s Tree Care to cut back tree limbs that are hanging low across parish streets and rights-of-way.

The tree trimming service is working south of Interstate 12 in the Sisters’ Road area to cut back limbs and remove debris on site, the release said. The goal is to create clear passageways for larger vehicles that also use these parish roadways.
