Willow tree to be taken down

The willow tree at the corner of Ballinger Way and Bothell Way in Lake Forest Park appeared to be all right after the portions damaged in the August 28 windstorm were cut away.

However, the City Arborist examined the tree and conducted an assessment which determined the tree needs to be removed.

While on site, the arborist also examined four white birch trees in the vicinity that had been previously examined in July 2013 and found to be infected with the bronze birch borer beetle. The birch trees have had additional beetle damage since 2013, and are also recommended for removal.
