ATTENTION DRIVERS: ANNUAL TREE MAINTENANCE BEGINS IN CITY PARK AND VARSITY VIEW

For immediate release: February 1, 2015 - 4:51pm
CY14-101

Starting Thursday, January 9, 2014, crews will begin pruning trees on civic property in City Park as part of the City of Saskatoon’s (City) overall boulevard tree maintenance program.  Varsity View will follow on Monday, January 13, 2014.

The boulevard tree maintenance program follows a regular pruning cycle to help preserve the health and appearance of the City’s boulevard and park tree inventory. Maintenance crews will remove any broken, dead, weak, and diseased branches. Keeping sidewalks and roads free of any hazards, crews will also remove any tree parts that are obstructing pedestrian or vehicle traffic and maintain appropriate clearances from buildings, signs, streetlights, and utility wires.  Tree maintenance operations in these two neighbourhoods will continue until the end of March.

Tree maintenance often requires road restrictions.  The City reminds pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to ensure that safety is a priority by respecting the work zone appropriately and obeying all road restrictions and signage.
