The Florida Forest Service has recently confirmed that southern pine beetles are infesting pines in the Springtree neighborhood, including Springtree Park, which is located at 2700 NW 39th Ave. The most effective way to prevent this pest from spreading and continuing to kill trees is to cut and remove infested trees as soon as possible. Accordingly, the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department (PRCA) plans to cut and remove actively infested pines from the park, as well as some trees in the park that are already dead, which may be a threat to neighboring properties.
