Tree Work in Art Mann Park
November 17, 2017
Following a risk assessment evaluation by an arborist, five Douglas Fir trees located adjacent to the parking lot and lake at Art Mann Park have been compromised. Some of these trees are candidates for wildlife trees and within the next few weeks will be cut or removed.
- That some trees will have the tops removed and be cut low enough that the trunk is sound and will continue to be enjoyed as wildlife trees.
- Two of the trees will be removed completely as one of the trees is completely dead and the other only has a few healthy limbs.
- Trim branches on other trees to reduce the risk of failure.
A wildlife tree is a tree (usually damaged, deformed, diseased, decaying, or dead) with special characteristics that provide valuable habitat for the conservation or enhancement of wildlife.
