Recall in 2015 and 2016, we had Town & Country Landscaping in along Garrison Creek cutting dangerous and overgrown cottonwoods and willows. We will begin the 2017 cutting program shortly, with Town and Country bringing in their large equipment as early as the end of this week. We apologize for the uncertainty of the startup date but T & C is trying to schedule our work in the middle of a very busy time of year for them, and we must coordinate with the Lions Park irrigation schedule so we do not damage the turf while bringing in the equipment.
The cutting program is smaller than last year’s program, with approximately 30 trees scheduled for removal. The trees will be ground into chips and spread on our walking trail between Bridge 1 and the Gazebo. Once we begin, the equipment and workers should be mobilized south of Garrison Creek for less than a week. If you are using the walking trail south of the Creek and see the crews at work, please remain 200 feet from the equipment for safety reasons.
