2018 Notices

Tree Removal along the Provo River Trail

 Posted December 10, 2018

Thanks to funds generated by Provo’s Recreation Arts & Parks (RAP) Tax, the Provo River Trail will be going through major renovation and improvement. 

Enhancements will include trail widening, safer trail routing, upgraded access points, lighting, and new trail signage.  All of these things will contribute to a healthier, safer trail experience.

Another important part of the improvement process is removing volunteer vegetation that has grown along the river’s edge and has damaged the trail in several places. Many of these trees are not high quality varieties and often interfere with trail design and use.  These weedy trees encroached sections of the trail causing raised asphalt from roots and create other problems. 

Department crews will remove problem trees and other vegetation issues in areas where the new trail will be installed. As part of the plan, more sustainable tree species will be planted in proper locations.
