Throughout the garden, maple trees have been pruned. Some have been removed and one was moved to the west path along the fence. The mountain area has had some clearing, allowing visitors to see the topography of the mountain, allowing the pagoda to be more visible.

Several cherry trees were diseased and had to be removed. Some of the trees will be replanted, and a large azalea bed will be installed in the future.
Possibly the most difficult situation for the gardeners this year was the flooding caused by the broken water main above the western side of the garden. It was fortunate that it happened during the day, and on a day when their were additional crew working in the garden. A huge amount of water (my notes say 100,000 gallons - is that accurate??)
