Trees removed at Pas Ka Poo

Trees beginning to rot

Due to the trees rotting, these unique and beautiful carvings are no longer on display at Pas Ka Poo Park.

“The bottoms were beginning to rot,” said park administrator Cheryl Jones. “Over the summer we had to take four down that were ready to fall.”

Jones said the remainder were taken down recently to ward off new rot.

The trees have been placed under cover in storage.

“We want to preserve all that we can of these works of art,” she said. “The Historical Society is working with Darren Jones (the carver) on ideas of were they can go so they will be out of the elements and the public can still enjoy them.”

Jones said cutting down the Spruce trees was unavoidable, but it has left a big gap near the playground at the park.
