Danville, VA - You can have part of Danville history.
The city is offering wood pieces from memorial trees for anyone who wants them.
The willow oak trees were planted along Mount Vernon Avenue and Virginia Avenue as a memorial to soldiers from Danville who died during World War One. Crews were out removing the trees Friday because they are a public safety risk. If you'd like a piece of one of the trees, you can get it at the city's compost facility off Stinson Drive, behind Danville Regional Airport.
The facility is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to noon and 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
