ATLANTA — The removal of magnolia trees for movie filming outside a state building is drawing objections.
WSB-TV reports Marvel Studios, whose crews are filming “Ant Man,” hired a company to remove eight magnolia trees in front of the old State Archives building for an unobstructed view for filming.
Former city of Atlanta tree arborist Tom Coffin says the mayor’s office gave the production company special treatment for the tree removal. Coffin says that the process violates an established and often arduous permitting process.
