Beware: Tree pruning and spraying is scheduled to occur on the Capitol Campus and at Heritage Park next week.
According to the state Department of Enterprise Services, which manages the campus, work will begin Tuesday and run through Thursday on trees on the Capitol Campus.
Pruning of the four Douglas fir trees at the Governor's Mansion and two historic Norway maple trees near the Sunken Garden and World War II Memorial may affect traffic and pedestrians, including in the mansion parking lot.
The North Parking Diagonal may be affected Wednesday.
The work will occur between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and workers will use chainsaws and tree chippers, so expect plenty of noise.
The London plane trees at Heritage Park will be treated with fungicide at 5 a.m. Thursday, weather permitting. (Forecasters say it could be sunny and 80 that day, so treatment is likely.)
A section of the park will be closed while the spray dries, which will take three to four hours. The closure will affect entrances to the park from Marathon Park, and the switchback from the upper Capitol Campus.
Another treatment of the trees at Heritage Park will follow in the coming weeks.
