Removal of hazard trees at Cates Park / Whey-ah-Wichen

Starting the week of December 9, 2019, approximately 30 hazard trees in the Malcolm Lowry Trail in Cates Park will be completely or partially removed for safety reasons.

Many of these trees are dead or dying, or require maintenance to maintain safety of visitors to the park. Where possible, staff will plant replacement trees and leave wood on site as habitat for ground species.

The affected species are primarily alder, hemlock, and maple.

For your safety, please stay clear of the area during tree work and keep dogs on leash.
