A tree removal plan is being developed to clear about four-acres of Ash trees in Fish Creek Park. Those trees have been killed from an Emerald Ash Borer infestation. The Town of Gibraltar Plan Commission and the Parks and Lands Committee will meet April 23rd to discuss the matter further. The Parks and Lands Committee has developed a tentative plan with an area forester. Committee member Tom Thurman says any removal plan would be on a fine line between removing the dead trees and protecting fish habitat.
The Fish Creek Park plan will eventually get help from Gibraltar School 5th graders in replanting trees along Fish Creek. The plan commission and parks and lands committee meeting begins at 6:00 PM at the town offices on Highway 42 in Fish Creek.
