"It's nowhere near being over," he said.
Bowen has been directed by the parks commission and the Division of Forestry to perform remediation work, which has included reseeding, patching of park roads and cleanup of slash piles. He is operating under the company name, "Bo-Ru, LLC," which was formed in July.
Parks Director Jeff Hutchinson said Thursday Bowen will continue to conduct paving work in the park and will return Oct. 10 to seal tree stumps.
The vast majority of the cut trees were oak species, according to the Division of Forestry report. Of the 337 trees cut, 103 were white oak, 88 scarlet oak, 62 black oak, 33 red oak and 13 chestnut oak.
Other harvested species were yellow poplar, sugar maple, black cherry, white ash, red maple, hickory and elm.
The report provides both International and Doyle board foot volume estimates. The estimated International board foot volume of the cut trees is 140,936 and the Doyle board foot volume is 114,401.
The division reported finding tops for 218 of the 360 total stumps. Volumes were estimated by measuring the distance from the stump to the top of the tree. Volumes for the remaining 142 stumps were gathered by calculating the heights of comparable trees in the area.
The division deducted rot from the volume of each tree when applicable.
