Cottonwood in Durango town run

I am up to help with anyone that wants to help remove the cottonwood that fell in the river above main street bridge. I have a dry suit, chainsaw and lots of rope. It looks like a big heavy pig

I am in if you need more hands. I have a drysuit, and rope/pulleys ect. If the city will take care of it... Sounds good. Not sure who took out the one that fell in the same place last season.

I have a call in to the Trails and open space division

Mary Beth with the Trails and open space division is checking on if the City is going to remove the tree. City Operations laughed when I called them.

City is out

Talked with Ron Moore from the Parks and Rec Department and he confirms that the city does not remove trees from the river. I stopped by Four Corners and was told how the last tree was removed, It was not by our tax dollars. It is iced in now, But I am ready to lend a hand when the going gets good.

Wait and see it the spring run off moves it, if not fire and rescue removed one downstream a few years ago, but only after people were getting hurt on it.
