The mostly dead trees would be a danger if they were to fall inside West Linn parks

PMG FILE PHOTO - Tree removal from West Linn parks is for safety reasons, according to the city. Over the next three weeks, the City of West Linn will be removing hazardous trees from Midhill, Robinwood, Mary S. Young and Wilderness parks to prevent any harm that could come if they were to fall.

"Our arborists see potential hazards as they drive around," Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Ken warner said. "Trees have a life expectancy unfortunately.

The tree removal will start at the end of July when crews will remove about 30 dead trees around the entrance road to Mary S. Young Park. In the first two weeks of August, they will move on to Midhill, Robinwood and Wildnerness parks.

"Fortunately these parks have lots of trees and really, at the end of the day, they're probably not going to notice they're gone when the stumps are removed," Warner said.

According to Warner, the City already removed trees at Hammerle and Sunset parks this year.
