After two big storms in June 2019, trees were downed all over Dallas. The City sent a crew to Turtle Creek Park to remove branches blocking sidewalks and roadways, and the Conservancy funded a private tree-care company to clear up hanging branches and other debris to get the park safe and usable again. The large stump in the stream that runs under the WPA bridge is a lingering issue, due to its size, weight and where it lies. It has been determined that removal by crane is not the best method due to the damage it could do to the slopes along the stream. The City is now looking at cutting the stump up and removing it in pieces.
