This project will prepare planting sites for invasive species removals including the planting of new and replacement trees at Idlewild Park.

Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: issues with a contractor, design error or omission, unexpected field conditions, change in the scope of the project, pending approval and registration of change orders and/or inclement weather.
