We’re starting work on January 13 to remove ash and hazard trees from Preservation Park.
This work is a part of our larger strategy to manage ash trees affected by the emerald ash borer.
Approximately 864 trees will be removed between January 13-24, weather permitting. Trees scheduled for removal will be marked with an orange “x”. Trail closures should be expected and we ask that residents stay out of the area during that time while crews complete their work.
We understand that removing ash trees will change the look of the natural area at Preservation Park. You can expect to see wood chips, logs and branches left in the natural area to prevent damage to the forest soils and other trees to provide nutrients to the soil as the wood material breaks down over time.
