HORSHAM Rural City Council will make alterations to than 30 sugar gum trees in Pimpinio, following community feedback.
In a statement, Infrastructure Director John Martin said residents recently reported concerns about the state of some trees along the Western Highway.
He said works along Church Street, which runs parallel to the highway through the town, would start on August 24.
"Many of the trees in the township are the responsibility of Regional Roads Victoria and some trimming works have already been done for the trees close to the highway," he said.
"There are also 34 trees along the nearby service roads that are the council's responsibility. Eleven of these have been earmarked for removal and another 15 will be trimmed.
"Where the removals create a significant gap in the plantation, we plan to replant with Angophora Costata (smooth-barked apple myrtle)."
