County parks beginning tree health and maintenance project at Pacific Community Park
The Parks and Lands division of Clark County Public Works is beginning a project to improve tree health and address hazardous trees at Pacific Community Park. Arborists have identified trees that need pruning, and a limited number of trees that require removal. Dead limbs and hazardous double trunks will be removed from 58 trees, and five trees will be removed. Trees and limbs that are broken or in poor health create a hazard for park users and infrastructure, as they are at increased risk of falling unexpectedly. The tree maintenance work will be completed in the next few months, with exact dates to be determined and dependent on weather. Learn more.
