Directorate of Public Works staff trim a plane tree near the Tony Bass Gymnasium. The trees located between Tony Bass and the Library were trimmed to deter the spring nesting of rook colonies in the area. German law specifies methods that can be used to relocate birds, as well as when trees can be trimmed or removed. DPW works closely with German federal agencies to balance conservation and community needs.
