Tree work, consisting of selective removals and pruning, is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019 and occur through the winter of 2020. Trees scheduled for removal were posted with notices in the past week. Tree pruning and removals are intended to address required maintenance around the 4.5-mile perimeter of Lake Merced. The final number of trees planned for removal is approximately 100, with 25 other trees scheduled for pruning.
This scope of work was approved by the Recreation and Park Commission in June 2019 following discussion in community meetings in September 2018 and April 2019.
