Unfortunately, the globe willow trees located west of the Nampa Campus Academic Building are diseased and crews are in the process of removing them for safety.
In addition to a third-party arborist, experts from the College’s Horticulture program examined the willows and determined the trees exhibit deficiencies that are major risk factors for branch and tree failure.
The trees were planted when Boise State University developed the campus.
Crews are expected to complete the removal process by the end of Friday, Sept. 20. A diversity of tree species will be replanted in place of the willows.
