NPS to Remove Storm-Damaged Trees in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania
From the National Park Service
Commencing on May 14, 2018, contractors will be removing more than 100 storm-damaged trees on the Wilderness Battlefield. The work will also include the cleanup of downed trees along roads throughout the park, the result of various storms in the past two years.
All work will be done in a manner that will protect sensitive cultural and natural resources and ensure the flow of traffic. Damaged trees will be felled where space permits, or dismantled where required. Work may entail the brief redirection of traffic along park roads.
The work will continue for approximately six weeks, ending about June 25.
