The City has planned vegetation maintenance around White Rock Lake, including raising tree canopies, removing invasive species and trimming plants.

Work will begin as early as Nov. 29 and will continue through March 30.

Crews will be raising tree canopies and removing invasive species along the whole shoreline. They’ll be trimming herbaceous perennials and grasses to six to eight inches to stimulate new growth along three areas. This work is meant to prevent shoreline erosion, preserve native species and desirable trees and create additional habitats.

Four other sections will be the sites of tree removal, trimming and pruning. Those places are along East Lawther and Winfrey Point, Sunset Bay and Celebration Tree Grove, Stone Tables, and Dreyfuss and Bath House.

A detailed list of the trees slated for maintenance work can be found here.
