Tree Removal at BES

Over the past few days, a tree removal effort has been taking place on the P-2 playground.Some of the trees have been removed for safety reasons. Recently, large branches from the pine trees have been breaking off and falling into the playground. Last spring, a large branch fell near some elementary students playing in the playground and one student was struck, fortunately the incident did not result in a serious injury.


A decision was made to evaluate the trees for removal due to the difficulty maintaining the trees to ensure safety. This decision was coordinated between operations and school staff and the decision was made to remove some of the trees for safety reasons.


School staff along with Gail Sinclair our Operations Dept. OH&S manager are currently in discussions about options that may include naturalizing the playground.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact David O'Quinn at 902-541-8240.
