  • Tree Removal Clears Way For New Plantings At Treadwell Park

    What happened to the trees at Treadwell Park? Nineteen of the existing locust trees have been removed, “much to the shock of many who visited [Monday, April 15],” said Parks Superintendent Carl Samuelson. After hearing concerns that the trees were “gone forever,” he said, “It is really the start of a better solution,” adding, “We are putting back more [trees] than we took down.”
