LOLO, Mont. (AP) - Anonymous protesters are prompting public works officials to redesign a bike path to avoid cutting down a weeping willow near Lolo, next to U.S. Highway 93.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1ESXNaC) unknown individuals posted signs on the willow saying “Green Leaves Matter” and “Please Save Me,” among others.

Missoula County public works director Greg Robertson said last week that when the Lolo Flats portion of the trail is built next spring, it won’t interfere with the tree.

Construction started in mid-April on the new bike path connecting Hamilton to Missoula, joining a route already in use that leads to Lolo.
