STAMFORD - Some Stamford residents are upset with plans to cut down trees in order to prevent sidewalk problems.

City officials say they received many complaints about the condition of the sidewalks near the corner of Seaton and Revere.

Engineers say tree roots are causing the heaving and cracks in the concrete sidewalk and the city says it will dig out and replace the old sidewalks.

The city also says it wants to remove the trees to prevent the problem from recurring.

Residents have collected more than 150 signatures from people who are against the removal of the trees. They plan to go up against the city at a public hearing and try to come up with some other solution that would allow these trees to remain.
