Louisville – Visitors to Karen Lynch Park this coming Thursday will see a great deal of activity as the park gets ready for Earth Day on April 22nd.
Limbwalker Tree Service will be donating their services at the park and Beargrass Falls by performing tree pruning and some tree removal. The goal is to help improve the health and look of the trees as well as improve the safety of those persons visiting the park.
“I appreciate this generous donation of time and effort by Limbwalker,”says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9). “This is an important park to the Butchertown area and efforts by specialists such Limbwalker show their commitment to preserving and maintaining our tree canopy and the results to both people and our planet.”
A Limbwalker crew will be on site all day. The chips from the trees will be left onsite to be used as mulch around existing trees.
"We have a passion for the work that we do, whether it is for our clients or our local volunteer efforts. We take pride that our work for Metro Parks, County Extension, and Love Louisville Trees improves the urban forest for everyone,” says Chris O’Bryan with Limbwalker Tree Service.
The triangular park is located at Brownsboro Road and Story Avenue and in November, 2012 was named in honor of Karen Lynch, a businesswoman and community activist for Butchertown.
