Cope Park alders face the axe this week

Several alder trees the city says are a hazard and a nuisance will disappear from Cope Park this week.

 

Parks & Recreation staff will cut down some alder trees around the edges of the baseball field, according to a release.

No spruce or hemlock trees will be removed.

“The alder trees that will be removed present a hazard to park users, and are threatening the stability of the retaining wall. Leaf litter from these deciduous trees also contributes to poor field conditions and clogs storm drains in the outfield,” the release state.

While the trees are coming down the ball fields will be closed. The rest of the park will be unaffected.

For more information, call Juneau Parks & Recreation at 586-5226.
