Planned tree removals on Glenridge trail, Glen Canyon Park

Planned tree removals (between 31 and 33) were announced by SF Park & Rec on August 16th. As part of the Glen Canyon Trail Restoration project trails will be restored, at the expense of trees along the Glenridge trail. Tree work will begin after September 16th.

Here are pictures of some of the trees that have been marked for removal (do not expect that these trees will merely be pruned).

The City is saying they have made and will continue to make every effort to prune trees rather than remove them if they can do that to mitigate the safety hazard to park users.
