The deeply forested Town of Woodway, located between the Richmond Beach neighborhood and the City of Edmonds, is using a federal grant to hire summer staff to clear hazardous trees from its streets.

Two new Public Works summer employees are helping the town get caught up on maintenance that has been delayed as a result of various COVID-related restrictions.

Terrance Bryant, the department director, is currently overseeing a large hazardous tree removal project.

According to Mayor Mike Quinn,

At several locations throughout Town, we are removing dead, dying, or hazardous trees. By removing these trees, we are reducing the likelihood of winter power outages, fires, and danger to pedestrians, vehicles and property.

It's been really good to see these dead and dying trees come out. If I understand correctly, the cause is a fungus called Seiridium that first attacks the limbs, then if it moves into the main trunk, it kills the tree. It attacks arborvitae, cypress, and junipers. Drought stress is just one of the factors.
