BIG THANK YOU TO THE TILLAMOOK SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT!
We are never happy when we have to cut down trees, but when they have the potential for damaging buildings, it is better to be proactive. Due to the possibility of damaging the Hazardous Waste Facility building during high winds, seven impaired trees close to the building were removed. We are extremely grateful to the Tillamook Soil and Water Conservation District who donated 20 young cedar trees and the labor to replace the seven trees that had to be cut down. These new trees will protect the Hazardous Waste Facility, and provide shade to those waiting to use it.
