Dear Yachats Community,
I have been working with a certified arborist to care for the trees on and around the grounds of our buildings. Many of the trees need some pruning and extra care. One tree in particular has been badly abused and will need to be removed. It has been hit multiple times by vehicles and has reached a point to which removing the dead and damaged parts will leave less than 50% of its crown. The tree is also severely compacted around its roots as there in not much soil around it. The City’s plan is to replace the tree with a shrub, or tree that would be better suited for the location. Our desire is to make sure that what we have is cared for so that future generations will have the beautiful grounds to enjoy that we have now.
