Sedona AZ (October 13, 2017) – The Red Rock Ranger District is making recreation safer at several of their day-use, camping and trailhead recreation areas by removing hazardous trees beginning tomorrow.
About 65 trees have the potential to fall at several recreation areas throughout the district.
“The trees will be cut down by chain saw, dropped and bucketed up on site,” said Mike Suggs, district lead recreation technician. “Please be aware of light traffic in the areas where the tree removal is taking place. Our specialists are doing this project for the safety of the people who recreate in the areas.”
The tree removal will start tomorrow in Oak Creek Canyon and move south throughout the day. On Oct. 20, the removal operations will move to the Beaver Creek areas and then to Fossil Creek on Oct. 27.
People recreating in these areas are reminded to be careful of vehicles, people operating chain saws and of possible temporary closures of parking spots.
