Tree Removal Notice

August 3rd, 2010 by UWBG Horticulturist


UWBG tree crew has scheduled the removal of a large standing dead pine collection for Wed. 8/4.  Details below:

Pinus strobus 977-97-E

Grid 35-4W

26″ DBH

Tree has been in decline for several years, possibly due to drainage problems and/or root rot.

Wood will be hauled and stump ground ASAP to minimize attracting pine pests.

Targets include Pinetum Loop trail and other and other plant collections.

Temporary road and trail closures and/or detours will be well marked at the site and removal posted at the Graham Visitors center. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions, please contact me via e-mail or phone number below.
