Trails inside the project area will be closed to the public
On July 25, Confluence Tree Service will begin removing hazardous trees in Lacamas Regional Park. Work is expected to be complete by July 29.
Impacted work areas will be identified on a map posted at the site. Trails inside the project area will be closed to the public. Park users should adhere to posted signage, remain outside of the work area, and use alternate trail routes during the scheduled closure.
During the project, the contractor will work to minimize impacts from falling branches and debris. However, neighbors who border the park on Northeast Pecan Lane and Northeast Spruce Lane are advised to move all patio furniture, grills, etc., to a protected location to avoid potential damage. For safety purposes, please do not approach the contractor while they are working or attempt to issue instructions to the contractor.
