Aberdeen begins process to remove birch trees at Sam Benn Park

Aberdeen Parks and Recreation Department
The City received a grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) to help complete a majority of this work. The trees were planted after World War One to honor those who fought in that conflict and the City will replace the trees during the renovation of that part of the park. Over the past several years, the trees have begun to show their age with disease and rot.  As a result, we have lost a couple during recent storms.
