Four large trees must be removed around white rock lake.

An urban biologist has inspected the trees and determined that because they are rotting and are near trails, park roads or busy areas, they should be removed.

The trees provide a benefit for wildlife, but they could harm park users, the biologist says. Their withdrawal is planned before June 31.

The City is also mediating and removing trees from White Rock Lake Park that were damaged in storms earlier this week.

Trees in other parks including Samuell-GrandTenison, Lake Highlands, St. Francis, and Dixon Branch Greenbelt were also damaged.

City staff are working on those trees this week.
