The HOLM Stretch | January 27, 2023
Starting Monday, January 30,
a total of seven cottonwood trees will be removed. These trees are considered past their life expectancy and are becoming hazardous. Cottonwood trees have less stability than other mature trees and this could lead to branches falling during major storms or strong winds. Over the last seven years, the City of Vernon has removed some of the large cottonwood trees on an annual basis.
“To make sure we still have beautiful trees in our park, the Parks Department has planted other varieties of trees throughout the park as succession trees,” said Kendra Kryszak, Manager, of Parks and Public Spaces.
There are numerous hazards and risks in construction zones and the City is requesting that members of the public respect this construction zone at Kin Beach and stay away from the area. The work is anticipated to be complete by Friday, February 10.
