Commencing this week, City Contracted Crews will begin removing stumps in the following Parks Silverthorn Park and Cedarbrook Park. All stumps are currently painted bright orange and are highly visible.
City staff have obtained locates of underground utilities in each park. After stump removal; crews will repair the ground and topsoil and reseed. Stump removal operations are weather dependant.
All City-owned park trees removed due to EAB will be replanted and will be installed over several years due to the: volume of trees removed from parks; limiting weather conditions; short planting season and the high demand and subsequent shortage of caliper trees.
