The City of Fort Collins Forestry Division will be running a large-scale tree pruning project along South Shields Street on Saturday, August 6, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

On Saturday, August 6, southbound Shields Street will shifted to one lane from Birch Street to Plum Street, between 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Routine pruning and tree removal are important to maintain public safety, as well as the health of the urban forest. Ten trees are planned to be pruned during this project. There is one large tree that will need to be removed for safety reasons.

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