Facilities and Operations is beginning a Tree Management program this spring to ensure trees remain healthy and present on district campuses.
Local company Beckner Tree Service is teaming with the district to trim trees, evaluate the health of trees on school campuses and replant trees that have been damaged by the wind. Beckner Tree Service features a licensed arborist and safety officer. Facilities and Operations Director Mike Kay says the goal is to plant 40 trees this spring and another 40 in the fall.
“We’ve lost a lot of trees the past two years due high winds,” said Kay. “We are excited to team with a local company and the City of Walla Walla arborist on this important Tree Management program.”
