I just stopped by Walmart in Cary and noticed that several landscaping islands in the parking lot were fenced off with orange plastic fencing and had a sign that read “Tree protected area”.

I’m just curious if anyone knows the reasoning behind this?

The city doesn't want developers to cut down all the trees.

"Tree protection; Clear cutting of trees prior to development in violation of Section 3.22 and other ordinance provisions may result in five year delay in approval of a building permit or site and/or subdivision plan and other penalties (See Section 3.22)."

Walmart is expanding.

Cary Planning Site Plan Documents.

Additionallly, and possibly unrelated, rumor has it there is a party with interest in placing a car wash at the corner of Crescent Commons Drive and Kildaire Farm Rd.

Yup, a certain amount of trees must remain undisturbed on site. With so much activity going on at a construction site they usually fence off the protected area so their is no miscommunication between work crews and the trees to be protected don't accidentally get chopped. That's why you see the high visibility fence.

I'm glad they protect at least some of the trees. The Cary Howler Monkeys need somewhere to hang too!

Aren't all of the the new ones Super-Wally-Worlds?

They've re-engineered old ones into Super-Wally-Worlds.

I bet a saw could go right through the orange fence. They need 12 foot chain link with razor wire if they really want to protect them. Painted beige of course.

They could also park an off duty Cary Police car next to it. Sorry I can't resist!
