Snow and ice have impacted approximately 100 trees on the University of Oregon campus during the recent winter storm.  Falling tree limbs can be very dangerous and unseen vulnerabilities must be evaluated by experienced arborists.  Currently, crews are using caution tape in areas that are of the highest concern.  Please DO NOT REMOVE caution tape and AVOID the areas blocked off.

Campus Operations crews have been working long hours around the clock during the storm and everyone’s cooperation to maintain safety is appreciated.

As melting occurs, please also avoid walking next to buildings that may have falling snow and ice from the roof.

Human Resources will send a memo about compensation issues related to inclement weather on Monday.
