Nature Center To Close Sept. 8-12 For Tree Trimming, Says Diseased Or Dying Eucalyptus, Alder, Oak & Pine Trees Are Falling & Posing Safety Risk; 27 Trees Will Be Removed
(Sept. 4, 2003) -- LB's Dept. of Parks, Recreation & Marine says the El Dorado Nature Center will be closed from September 8-12 for tree trimming.
"The Nature Center has experienced threats to public safety as eucalyptus, alder, oak and pine trees that are diseased or are dying began falling throughout the Center," says Parks Rec. & Marine in a written release.
The release adds:
"Because of the serious danger to the public, the Nature Center has contracted with a tree service to remove 27 trees that show serious limb failure, disease or signs of imminent collapse onto the trail. Work on this project will also be coordinated with the Audubon Society and the Department of Fish and Game to ensure that important habitat will not be jeopardized. As the El Dorado Nature Center restoration moves forward, sycamores, oaks, cottonwoods, alders and maples will be planted along the trail, providing a richer habitat for the birds and other creatures that reside in the Center."
