See larger Craig Conway, an employee with Innovative Environmental Service, trims the branches of the Royal Poinciana trees that create a canopy along Sixth Street South on Monday in downtown Naples. The city of Naples on Wednesday cut down a tree at Sixth Street South and Fifth Avenue South - pictured across the street in the median - in order to make room for street lights as part of the city's million dollar Fifth Ave lighting project. The tree was one of very few shade trees on the street and often confused with a Royal Poinciana. The tree was actually, half fig tree and half albizia, an exotic that was taking over the tree.
