Ecola State Park will be closed Dec. 10-12 while crews work along the park’s entrance road to remove hazard trees. The park is expected to reopen the morning of Dec. 13.
Park rangers have identified several hazard trees — dead, diseased or unstable trees that pose a safety risk to people or structures— on Ecola State Park Road. Hazard tree removal is a routine practice during the winter at most state parks.
Oregon Parks and Recreation Department has hired Tillamook-based Whitehead Reforestation to complete the project. Estimated cost is $7,000.
