Springdale, Ar - Don Tyson Parkway is getting a facelift over the next few days, with more than 100 trees being uprooted from the median, and replaced.

Tyson foods wasn't happy with the trees lining the road named after Don Tyson.

"They were various sizes, various species," says Springdale Public Works Director Sam Goade. "It's my understanding that the Tysons, Incorporated had a desire to get a more standard look along the length of the parkway."

The company bought Sugar Maple Trees, and hired contractors to plant the larger trees from 48th Street to HWY 71 Business. The public works department is transporting the original trees to the city's newly created tree farm.

"(They) are various species of trees that are termed 'street trees,'" Goade says. "They will grow well in an environment nearby a street and we can make those trees available for different projects as the need arises throughout the years."
