CANNON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Hundreds of trees have been marked for removal at a popular western Michigan park because of disease.

Kent County Parks Director Roger Sabine says they were selected by a forester because there are diseased trees in the area. The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1JWze38 ) diseased trees and some additional ones will be removed by this fall at Warren Townsend Park to thin the woods.

An aim is to allow healthy trees room to grow. Sabine said timber management is a normal procedure for the sprawling Kent County park.
