Tree Removal & Planting in the Park Blocks

A tree planting adventure has been scheduled by the city on March 12th in the 72nd Avenue park blocks between Failing and Beech. Below are the plans for removal and replanting. Some of the trees in the park blocks are at the end of their lifespan and have become dangerous. You may have noticed how easily some have fallen in recent storms. So, as some trees must be removed, others will be taking their place.
