Tree Removal, Replacement Continue in Winamac Town Park

Entrance to the Winamac Town Park

New trees have been planted in the Winamac Town Park, while old trees continue to be removed. Park Manager Dave DeLorenzo told the park board last week that 15 of the park’s 18 new trees have now been planted, thanks to Proscapes Unlimited, Dave Bennett, and Park Board Member Jon Chapman. The planting was originally scheduled to take place during a park cleanup day last month, but was delayed by flooding.

On the other hand, DeLorenzo said recent storms have claimed three trees in the park. “We did have one tree that fell on its own and two that had to be cut down,” he explained. “One broke off about halfway up and hung itself in a couple other trees.”

Meanwhile, three ash trees were removed by the town’s Electric Department, while the Park Department removed another dead tree.
