Cottonwoods Spread their Roots on the SouthEast Connector Project

Cottonwood trees planted alongside willows help create the new wetlands complex in Segment 4.

Dear Stakeholder:

The project team has begun the planting of more than 600 trees, 569 of which are cottonwoods, throughout the project corridor. Segment 4 (between Clean Water Way and Pembroke Drive) is the first and largest area to receive tree planting due to the creation of the new wetlands complex located adjacent to Yori Drain. Cottonwoods are ideal for planting throughout the project because they are water-tolerant. The trees will also help stabilize the banks of Steamboat Creek which before construction where nearly vertical due to erosion.
