Tree cutting is landscaping work

USBR workers trim trees on the side of SR 155 Monday afternoon.

Tree cutting along the walking trail south of Pole Park is primarily for safety reasons, a Bureau of Reclamation spokesperson stated Monday.

Lynn Brougher, public affairs officer, said the tree cutting will allow Bureau workers to mow along the pathway making it more possible for walkers to see any rattlesnakes that might be in the area.

The Bureau is also cutting down and trimming trees on the upper side of SR-155, near Pole Park, because they are encroaching on the roadway. “Some are diseased,” Brougher stated.

“It is primarily landscaping work,” she added.
