The following is a press release issued by the County of Mendocino:
On Saturday, December 17, 2022, weather permitting, the County of Mendocino will begin tree trimming services on the magnolia tree in front of the Courthouse building in Ukiah. Pursuant to the attached arborist’s report, the tree has severe cracking at the base, and needs to be trimmed to reduce excess weight. The County of Mendocino is monitoring the situation and will attempt to minimize further deterioration of the tree.
The County will continue to water and measure the tree for any additional cracking or damage in conjunction with the contractor arborist and the County’s Farm Advisor and UC Cooperative Extension.
Please avoid the area during this time to allow contractors to complete their work and for your own safety.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Mendocino County General Services Agency at 707-234-6050.
