Tree cut down at Cadzow to be replaced by three new trees

Contact Us

During the construction of Cadzow Park, Town of St. Marys staff worked to ensure that all of the mature trees around the park were protected from damage. They also situated the playground, splash pad, pavilion and amphitheater in such a way as to maximize the shade given by the trees in the park.

Since the construction of the park, the maple tree north of the splash pad has died. Due to its proximity to the splash pad and for the safety of everyone at the park, Town staff will begin removing the tree on Tuesday, July 23.

As with all trees that need to be removed from Town property, three young trees will be planted in its place. In the case of the new trees at Cadzow, they will be planted (likely this fall or spring) once the pathways have been completed and will be situated to provide maximum shade for those enjoying the park while avoiding park infrastructure.
