UPDATE Tuesday, Aug. 2: The two trees were removed on Saturday, July 30.
Within the coming weeks, two tall conifer trees in the Research Courtyard between Mac Hall Cafe and the new Center for Radiochemistry Research will be removed due to an imminent safety hazard. During the course of CRR construction and courtyard renovations, crews discovered the conifers in the southwest corner had inadequate root systems to support their height, posing a toppling risk. The trees could be removed by OHSU’s arborist as soon as Saturday, July 30. The removal will take place over a weekend to avoid disturbing campus activities.
