"A standoff between environmentalists in trees and workers clearing the way for a Texas portion of the Keystone XL pipeline has led crews to move around the protesters."
"Contractors for TransCanada, the company behind the pipeline, have been disrupted several times by protesters near Winnsboro in northeast Texas, some of whom have put themselves in potentially dangerous situations to halt work.
“We are trying to work around them,” TransCanada spokesman David Dodson said. “We’re getting pretty concerned about their escalation of tactics.”
TransCanada has reached new agreements with landowner David Daniel, who owns the property where the protesters have set up in trees, Dodson said."
