A mature western hemlock, Tsuga heterophylla, is scheduled for removal on Wed, April 30. It is located in Rhododendron Glen, north of the Glen pond.
- Fungal conks seen growing on the trunk is an indicator that a rot inducing pathogen is present.
- Its hazard potential is great due to extensive internal decay.
- A wild-life snag will be left in place.
Each tree requires evaluation to determine the best course of action for the site.
