Tree removal at Spry soccer stadium

On Monday, April 20th, 18 Virginia Pine trees were removed along the perimeter of Spry soccer stadium as part of the grounds restoration plan for the stadium. Removal of the pines allows for increased light filtration onto the soccer field resulting in healthier turf grass. Deciduous trees exposed by this removal, including red and willow oaks, will now provide the backdrop to the stadium.
