STALLONE TO REPLANT TREES

Sylvester Stallone has agreed to replant hundreds of trees and bushes cut down on his property without city approval.

Stallone, who recently agreed to sell his waterfront mansion for $16.2 million, settled the case last week, said Stallone's lawyer Neal S. Litman.

"Mr. Stallone and the new owners of the property have worked out an arrangement," Litman said. "Mr. Stallone had no knowledge that the trees had been taken down. Someone on his staff removed the trees on his own."

Nursery owners estimated the cost of the settlement at $200,000 to $500,000.

In addition to replanting the 173 trees 20 feet or taller, the restoration project requires Stallone to buy 1,488 smaller trees and brush, and have them landscaped. He also will replace a rare native hardwood hammock.
