Traffic moves past the large holly tree Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023, at the intersection of E.E. Butler Parkway and West Academy in Gainesville. The holly tree has been decorated for Christmas for 30 years, but will soon be taken down as part of the roundabout project at the site. - photo by Scott Rogers
