Tree and hedge pruning work occurring on Capitol Campus this week

-

Tree and hedge pruning work will be done on locations throughout the Capitol Campus on Wednesday, Jan. 10, and Thursday, Jan. 11, to improve hedge and tree health, ensure public safety and provide clear lines of sight for security cameras.

There will be noise as well as short-term vehicle and pedestrian impacts in various locations on the campus on Wednesday, Jan. 10 and Thursday, Jan. 11. Streets that will have traffic impacts include Deschutes Parkway and Maple Park Drive.

In addition to pruning work, the project will include:

  • Removing two deceased alder trees west of the John L O'Brien Building and one deceased conifer along Deschutes Parkway. Three new trees will be planted later this spring by Enterprise Services grounds staff.
  • Grinding and removing stumps in the Maple Park area and near Office Building 2. Replacement sugar maple and pear trees have already been planted at these locations, where dying trees were removed last year.

The tree and shrub work follows the Capitol Campus Grounds Management Plan. Enterprise Services contracted with Arbor Care Tree Specialists to perform the work:

  • On Wednesday, Jan. 10, crews are expected to work near the John L O'Brien Building, the Governor's Mansion parking lot, the Visitor Center and the Maple Park area.
  • On Thursday, Jan 11, crews are expected to work near the Governor's Mansion, OB2 and the Maple Park area.
