[ARCHIVED] Community Asked to Please Use Caution in Local Parks

Although many of Eugene’s parks have been cleared of tree debris on the ground, trees in parks have not yet been thoroughly assessed for dangerous limbs also known as hangers following the storm. The public is asked to use caution while in parks, pay attention to any broken limbs in trees and avoid being under trees.

Due to the widespread nature of the recent storm, the process to mitigate tree hazards in parks will take some time. Currently tree scouts are working across the city to assess damage and place caution tape around trees that are deemed to have dangerous limbs. This work will be followed by tree crews who will remove limbs.

The City of Eugene Parks and Open Space Division will regularly list parks that have been deemed all clear by tree crews on its Facebook page.
