Tree surgeons will make safe 66 other trees on the drive
The trunks of disease riddled trees are to be turned into sculptures in a project involving school children.
Twenty-nine out of 270 trees on Culloden Drive in Culloden are to be felled because they are deemed to be a danger to public safety.
Some of the trunks will be sculpted by artist Iain Chalmers to designs created by Duncan Forbes Primary pupils.
Highland Council ranger John Orr said the youngsters had come up with creative ideas for the timber.
The trees to be taken down have become weakened by fungus, vandalism or through age. A small number are affected by Dutch Elm disease.
A further 66 require tree surgery to remove dead wood.
