City removing diseased trees at Willow Beach on June 30

Removing diseased trees

The City of West Kelowna will be removing a pair of diseased trees at Willow Beach tomorrow. 

To accommodate the removal process, crews will close sections of the beach for the day on June 30. 

“Assessments of the willow trees last year and again this spring have determined they are progressively deteriorating and deemed a risk to public safety,” said Stacey Harding, parks and fleet operations manager.

“We are disappointed to see them go. However, we plan to replace the trees once the removals are completed.”

The City will either replant willows or maple species to match the others that crews have planted since 2010 during the various phases of Gellatly Road and Trail Upgrades.
