Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest & SSBP - Hazard tree work

As you may have noticed, fallers have begun bringing down trees in the South Surrey Bike Park, and throughout the entire Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest, (SAUF) of which the SSBP is apart. Every 13 years the City of Surrey, with a group of professionals, assess every treed park to determine which trees pose a hazard to citizens, and which need to be removed to reduce the hazard.  The assessment determined that 900 trees needed to be removed, 400 in the SSBP.  Although this is saddening news, SORCE understands the need for the City of Surrey to mitigate risk.  Rest assured, that almost all of these trees are completely dead without any foliage. We are working closely with the City to identify any trees we don't think should be removed, and have had success in lowering that number. 

Please be aware of this work going on in the forest over March, and be respectful and careful around the workers doing their jobs.  This fall, the City of Surrey will plant 1800 native species trees to replace the ones being removed.  Thank you for your cooperation. Garvey Allisen.
