More hazardous trees along trail need work at foot of Fifth Street

December 17, 2012
(Wenatchee, WA) Wenatchee Riverfront Park loop trail users will need to make a slight detour Wednesday and Thursday around the area at the foot of Fifth Street as Chelan County PUD removes one (and possibly two) unhealthy maple trees right along the trail. One of the two trees may remain if closer examination after selective pruning indicates it is healthy enough to stay.

PUD Parks workers expect to replant new trees of a different variety in the area once spring arrives. A suitable fast-growing variety will be chosen in consultation with the local Washington State University Cooperative Extension office since the area is highly prized for its shade on hot summer days.

The two maples, along with numerous other trees along the Riverfront Park trail, were identified as potential hazards in 2009, and the PUD has been keeping a close eye on the trees’ condition since then after removing a number of hazard trees in 2010. Arborists recently told the PUD the two additional trees should be removed for public safety due to cracks in the trunks and limbs.

Signs will be posted along the Loop Trail to guide walkers and bikers through the detour area. Full trail access should be restored by Friday.
