Overview

The Municipality of Dysart et al has the mandate to provide a broad range of services to taxpayers such as cultural and recreational opportunities. This includes the management and monitoring of parklands within the Municipality. There has been noticeable damage occurring to the trees along the shoreline of Head Lake and Rotary Park, so a plan was developed for recommendations on the best ways to maintain sustainable tree development at Head Lake Park. The research will address the following questions:
• What tree damage and loss is occurring along the shoreline in the park, and what are the possible causes?
• What species of trees currently exist on the shoreline in the park?
• How can the existing trees be protected from further damage and loss?
• What is the recommended species and management plan for future sustainable tree maintenance in the park?
To answer these questions, a field study was developed to assess the current state of the shoreline trees and included assessments of tree damage, tree species, tree density, tree health and the quality of the soil. This project will examine the extent of the damage that has been inflicted on the trees along the shoreline at Head Lake Park and provide recommendations based on the field observations, laboratory and literary analysis.
