Short detour on Burke-Gilman Trail in Lake Forest Park for hazardous tree removal

Beginning Monday, Oct. 26, King County Parks set up temporary detours around segments of the Burke Gilman Trail in Lake Forest Park while crews began removing 40 hazardous Lombardy Poplar trees.

The hazardous trees are located along the Burke Gilman Trail between Ballinger Way NE and NE 165th Street in Lake Forest Park.

The temporary closure will take place mid-day Monday through Friday and last for two work weeks. The trail is expected to be open in the evenings, with closings lasting from 7am to 3:30pm. There are two trail segments that will be affected. To minimize impacts to adjoining neighborhoods, only one trail section will be closed at a time.

One detour will start at NE 165th Street and route trail users along Beach Drive Northeast before rejoining the trail at NE 170th Street. The other detour will start at Brentwood Place NE and route trail users along NE 171st Street before rejoining trail at NE 170th Street.

What exactly does it mean for a tree to be hazardous enough to be taken down and put away, into storage or chopped up or whatever? I think some fallen trees lend a bit of authenticity to the park!
