Port OKs seeking Lincoln Park tree removal contract

PORT ANGELES – The green light for a contract to remove about 200 Lincoln Park trees was approved Monday by Port of Port Angeles commissioners.

But the city, which owns the park on the west side, also has identified an additional 150 trees that could be removed later within a two-acre parcel in the 147-acre park.

Lincoln is a city park, but the tree removal is being conducted by the port because the Federal Aviation Administration says the firs stand too tall in the approach to nearby William R. Fairchild International Airport, which the port owns.

The contract to remove the 200 trees, to cost as much as $100,000, will be awarded following today’s 2 p.m. bid opening.

Then the port staff will report back to the commissioners with the bid results on Sept. 10.
