Toledo City Council agrees with tree expert: A library Black Walnut and a Maple must go

The Toledo City Council Tuesday night heeded the advice of an arborist that two trees outside the city library are hazards and should be pulled out and turned into works of art, if not some outdoor reading furniture.

Toledo Public Works Director Frank Anderson told the council that the Black Walnut that is to the right (west) of the main library entrance is literally starving to death because its roots are mostly under a sidewalk and under the library building. He said the tree is not robust and could see some limbs failing in the near future. He said the arborist recommended against trying to use container straps to hold up the limbs. Another tree was recommended for removal, the Maple by the wall. Anderson said that the arborist predicted the tree would take out the wall eventually. Anderson said the Black Walnut would probably make some nicely sculpted wood or perhaps some outdoor reading furniture around the library grounds. The Black Walnut to the east of the library entrance appears to be fine. He said the arborist recommended Japanese Maple to replace the Black Walnut to the right of the entrance.

And Lincoln County Schools Safety Officer Sue Graves told the council that if they would like to receive a portion of a $30,000 disaster supplies fund, offered by the Lincoln County Commission, they should get their application in right after the first of the new year. All seven Lincoln County cities, all fire districts and the Oregon Coast Community College are invited to apply for a share of the funds. And there’s not enough to go around. It’s first come, first served. In Toledo’s case, Graves said, the city and the Toledo Fire District could offer $2,500 match money which would produce $15,000 to buy emergency water, drinking straws. tents, tarps and other essential which would be placed at Toledo Elementary School for students and school staff.
