How much of Pioneer Park will have trees removed?

The project is only looking at the southwest portion of the park around the existing wetland. The total proposed project area is 43.6 acres. This includes 33.4 acres of existing wetland and 10.2 acres of upland.

The City is not looking to remove any trees outside the project boundary. This is concentrated around the existing wetland area in the southwestern portion of the park. Almost all of the wooded parts of the park are outside this project boundary and would not be impacted.

In other areas of the park the City only removes trees that pose a danger of falling on the trails. The City Council may request removal of dead trees or buckthorn in the remainder of the park at a future date.
