Upcoming Tree Removal at PES

This year we have experienced significant drainage and pipe issues at PES. Upon investigation, it was determined that the three large trees close to the building in front of the school are creating this issue. These trees have also begun to lift the sidewalk and if not addressed, will create building foundation issues in the future.


We wanted to reach to inform our family community that these three trees will be removed. The work will begin sometime this spring. Then over the summer we will have landscaping work to address the drainage issue.


We are looking for suggestions on the new landscaping and options for potential uses of the wood to benefit our school community. Some initial suggestions have been to donate for firewood to families in need and/or to create a piece of furniture or artwork to remain at the school. If you have other ideas or would like to support these efforts please email me.
