News Release
County parks beginning tree health and maintenance project at Pacific Community Park - 09/21/23

Vancouver, Wash. – The Parks and Lands division of Clark County Public Works is beginning a project to improve tree health and address hazardous trees at Pacific Community Park. Arborists have identified trees that need pruning, and a limited number of trees that require removal. Dead limbs and hazardous double trunks will be removed from 58 trees, and five trees will be removed. 

Trees and limbs that are broken or in poor health create a hazard for park users and infrastructure, as they are at increased risk of falling unexpectedly. Public Works removes hazardous limbs or trees from county properties when they present a risk to users or property, or to neighboring properties. While some removed limbs and trees will be disposed of by the contracted arborist, others will be chipped and used in the park’s landscaping. Using wood chips in non-mowed areas reduces weeds and helps the plants and soil retain moisture. 

The tree maintenance work will be completed in the next few months, with exact dates to be determined and dependent on weather. Notice of maintenance work will be posted in the park. To ensure the safety of park visitors, portions of the park may be closed during tree maintenance work. Closures will be marked with signage. Closure dates and information will also be posted at

To receive information about road and park projects, closures, opportunities for community input, and more, residents can follow Public Works on TwitterFacebook and Instagram and view information on Nextdoor.
