7 thoughts on “Deforestation of Oakwood Park

  1. Cutting down Oaks that are over 100 years old, for a landscaping plan that the city cant afford and will take decades to complete, doesn’t sound like a brilliant idea.

    • The majority of the trees that are being taken down have reached a point in their life cycle [due to age or disease or a combination of both] where it is safer and smarter for us to remove them than to wait for Mother Nature to do it. Oakwood Park hasn’t been properly taken care of in a very long time. Since nobody had the foresight to turn all 3 of our big parks over to the Metroparks, I’m glad to see the city put the proper grant funds to work to make this a usable space once again. It would be nice if they could find a way to repurpose the wood when they re-build the picnic pavilions, concession stands, etc.

    • I haven’t been over there to see for myself what’s going on. I hope you’ll be at Thursday’s meeting to ask your questions and get some answers.
