As part of the tree management program at Hyde Park, a focus has been placed on the extensive removal of “brush” including Honey Suckle, Poison Ivy and various types of vines. This program has opened up vistas, improved air movement and reduced encroachment of these weeds that inhibit growth of native tree species and shrubs. Close to six acres of “brush” has been removed since 2004, with the current initiative focused along Erie Avenue and the left side of # 2 tee. In the long-term the work beside #2 tee will include planting of fine fescues and various native trees to enhance the area. Below are a few photos from past areas that have been cleaned up.
