All remaining poplar trees along the plaza walkway will be coming down on the Seattle Children’s Hospital construction site during the week of March 8. The poplar trees are being sent to a company that will recycle the wood for a variety of purposes. Their removal should not impact traffic but there may be some noise related to this activity during the day. The crew will fall the trees away from the hospital’s Train building toward the job site. The construction team will then remove the wood with trucks during normal working hours.
