Greensboro residents and officials found themselves springing into action Thursday to prevent Duke Energy Corp. from cutting down more trees in the city, the News & Record reports.

The city had said it will take legal action if Duke did not stop all nonemergency tree trimming and removal by 5 p.m. yesterday. City officials and residents prevented contractors at some sites from doing more tree work, and all trimming operations were stopped by Duke Thursday afternoon.
