XENIA — Pierce Park and its Scout Dog Park will be closed intermittently beginning this week for the removal of dying trees.

Plans call for work crews and heavy equipment to be within the Xenia park for the next several weeks, depending on weather conditions, removing the trees, according to a release from Greene County Parks & Trails. All three dog parks will be closed during the project at the park.

Ash trees killed by the Emerald Ash Borer and other dying trees will be removed from the dog park and throughout the park. According to the parks agency, the trees pose a safety risk if not removed.

“Safety is the number one priority for our park agency,” Greene County Parks & Trails Director of Operations Chuck Frazier said. “We want our park visitors to be safe and to enjoy their time with friends, families and their pets when visiting the park or dog park.”
