The City of Fort Collins Forestry Division will be running a large-scale tree pruning project on East Mulberry Street from Thursday, November 4 through Saturday, November 6.

On Thursday, November 4 and Friday, November 5 westbound East Mulberry Street, between Riverside Avenue and Mathews Street, will experience a lane shift to accommodate pruning, delays in traffic are expected. On Saturday, November 6, westbound East Mulberry Street will be closed between Mathews and Remington Street.

Work is anticipated to take place from 7:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. and alternate routes of transportation are recommended during these times.

Routine pruning and tree removals are important to maintain public safety, as well as the health of the urban forest. Approximately 38 trees will be pruned along Mulberry Street during this project. Additionally, two trees on the northwest corner of Mulberry and Mathews Street will be removed due to public safety concerns.

The work set to take place is dependent on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
