Tree Assessment Project

tree-decay_wTrees play an important part in managing stormwater, stabilizing slopes, providing habitat, reducing air pollution, and contributing to neighborhood character. We know the trees are very important to the public enjoyment and beauty of our parks, however as trees mature they can also develop decay or other conditions that can cause them to drop large branches or topple over.

Pierce County Parks and Recreation will be assessing tree health at Spanaway Park and Chambers Creek Regional Park throughout 2017.  Trees with serious defects such as root decay and advanced stem cankers will be removed.

Chambers Creek Regional Park



Trees will be assessed along Grand View Trail and Grand View Drive in March. Trees with serious defectswill be removed for the safety of Park visitors between August and December of 2017.
