Trees Wrapped on Snow King Avenue

You may have noticed that some of the trees along the Snow King corridor have been recently wrapped. You may be asking why.

The Parks and Recreation has asked us to pass along information on this project (in case anyone asks!).

Teton County/Jackson Parks & Recreation recently partnered with the Teton Conservation District and Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance to wrap the street trees along the north side of Snow King Avenue.

Recent beaver activity in Karn’s Meadow has led to a couple of trees being damaged along Snow King Avenue. Parks and Recreation crews have been working with the Town of Jackson to mitigate impacts on infrastructure. It was determined that the best course of action was to wrap the trees to discourage the beaver from working on them.

Several different options were considered and it was determined that wrapping the trees would be the least impactful and most environmentally responsible course of action.

Eight volunteers from the two groups, along with Parks and Recreation staff Steve Bigger and Matt Moore, spent the several hours wrapping the trees.

The Jackson / Teton County Parks and Recreation team would like to thank the Teton Conservation District and JH Conservation Alliance for their efforts. We hope to continue our partnership with similar groups in the valley to continue responsible stewardship in our sensitive areas around Town.
