WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will hold an informational meeting in West Des Moines to discuss a planned tree harvest from a central Iowa state park campground site.

The meeting will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Walnut Woods State Park Lodge.

The public is invited to the meeting to discuss 13 hazard trees located in Walnut Woods’ campground. The DNR hopes to sell the trees to a timber buyer rather than paying to have them removed.

Officials say any questions about the plan can be directed to the Walnut Woods park manager, Tim Gedler, at 515-285-4502, or district forester Aaron Wright at 515-993-4133.
