Tree at McPolin Farm, dead a year, taken down
June 12, 2013
A landscaping crew cut down a tree on the grounds of the McPolin Farm on Monday morning, a year after it died.
The Park City Parks Department says the black willow tree, which stood at least 35 feet tall, died in the spring of 2012. The department is unsure what caused its death or hold old it was.
Three independent arborists indicated it was a safety hazard and the tree should be removed, the Parks Department says.
The takedown on Monday was likely seen by numerous drivers as they passed on S.R. 224. The workers, wearing hard hats, used a chainsaw to cut the trunk into round chunks and then loaded them into a truck to be removed.
