In 2006 the Friends of Barton Springs Pool warned that trees in the pool area needed attention. City council funded a study and evaluation of the trees. The study has been delivered. Some trees must be removed, some will receive care, and some new trees will be planted.
Friends vice president Robin Cravey commented, “Tree removals hurt, but sometimes they are necessary. The benefit is that new trees will be planted, and many of the trees standing will get much-needed arbor care.”
The Barton Springs Tree Assessment Report and Action Plan will be presented to the Joint Committee of the Parks and Environmental Boards on Monday evening at 6:30 pm. Also on the agenda are reports on Barton Springs Gravel Removal, Barton Springs Bypass Tunnel, and Barton Springs Short-Term Projects. Representative of Friends of Barton Springs will attend the meeting.
