Existing trees need to be removed from the site of Fire Station #2; we wanted to make sure they were recycled into firewood or other usable materials for use by our public. This keeps the cut trees out of the landfill and provides a use for their wood. After construction, new trees will be planted that are drought tolerant as well as native to our area.
Why-Due to the necessary removal of the existing trees at the site for the new Fire Station #2 located on the corner of Thomas and Hughes Road
When-Starting the morning of August 4, 2011, the public is welcome to come by and remove the wood for firewood, etc. The wood will be available through Sunday. Availability is on a first come basis.
Where-The wood will be sitting in stacked piles of manageable pieces on the right of way along Thomas.
Caution-We ask that you do not bring saws or power tools of any kind for cutting purposes. The wood is already cut into manageable pieces. Due to work being performed onsite, we ask that you stay on the right of way and not enter the construction workspace.
Contact-If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Kristen Kulavich, Sustainability Liaison, 256-682-5117.
