I-69E/US 77 Palmtrees have been an iconic part of the Rio Grande Valley welcoming locals back home and bringing memories to those who have left home to pursue higher education, a career or create families of their own. This project will not only remove a piece of our roots but tamper with the environment, although they plan on relocating them, the chances of approximately 200 trees scheduled to be moved may not survive . Please help us in reaching our local representatives find alternatives to this project and saving our eager to see Palm Trees when returning home.
