A hackberry tree will be removed by City of Allen Urban Forestry from Bethany Lakes Park near Joe Farmer Recreation Center's south entrance.
The tree, which is rotten at the base, very weak and full of mistletoe, will have portions of its canopy removed on December 18. The remainder of the tree will be removed and replaced with a new tree in early 2019.
The tree canopy removal process on December 18 will take a few hours, and the area immediately surrounding the tree will be closed off during the removal process.
For questions and more information, please contact City of Allen Urban Forestry at 214.509.3330.
