Replant Downtown Park

Saturday, August 19, 2017

Because of safety concerns, the Town of Christiansburg has hired a contractor to remove 18 trees in Downtown Park, on College Street, during the week of August 14. The trees being removed are all Black Locust, an invasive species known for unexpectedly dropping its limbs. Several large branches have fallen in recent weeks, creating a safety hazard in the park, especially because of the height from which the limbs fall. Many of the Black Locust trees are also suffering from a fungal infection, weakening the limbs and increasing the likelihood of broken branches. Downtown Park will be closed Aug. 14-18 during the tree removal process. On Saturday, Aug. 19, the public is invited to take part in a community replanting event at Downtown Park from 9 a.m. to noon. Town staff will be on site to help with the planting and provide information on the new tree species and their growth patterns. This is a rain or shine event.
