Trees in Guenther Pond Area
The area along the creek way at Guenther Pond has been aggressively cut back to remove dead and dying Ash trees. There were also numerous invasive species (boxelder, honeysuckle, buckthorn) and potential hazardous trees being removed. Several Black Willow trees had large splits and substantial leans creating the risk of major erosion if uprooted during a storm. The root systems are still intact for stabilization of the embankment. We have more work to do in the near future and there are plans to replant the area with native species.
