Trees Removed From Courthouse

Last weekend, Lincoln County facilities staff cut down several trees from

the courthouse lawn that were growing into the building and had rotting, diseased limbs

that potentially threatened people and property. The five trees, all Leyland cypresses, were planted as part of a beautification effort during the 1980s.The Leyland cypress is a fast-growing hybrid of the Monterey and Nootka cypresses.

The trees’ limbs had begun to grow into the north face of the courthouse, and some

limbs were visibly splintering and splitting. The trees were also leaning to the east and

in peril of toppling. When workers used a lift to begin cutting them from the top down, they found extensive disease and rot, facilities and maintenance manager Mike Copp said. The cut logs will be used by Lincoln County Parks for trail enhancement.
