Highland Cemetery in Casper is experiencing some closures as tree companies are in the process of removing dead and hazardous trees throughout the cemetery.  A total of 46 trees are scheduled to be removed, and the City says sections of the cemetery will be closed to ensure the safety of visitors. The closures will be temporary and will change daily during the removal, which began March 8th and is expected to take two weeks.

City officials say crews will be hauling trees that are suitable for firewood to a marked location near the cemetery main office and the wood will be available free of charge while supplies last.  If you're interested in collecting firewood, you need to fill out a waiver before loading and hauling. Waivers will be available at the cemetery office, 1860 East 12th Street, and at the Casper Service Center  at 1800 East K Street.  The cemetery office will have extended hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday from March until March 23rd.  The Casper Service Center is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If you have any questions or want more information, you can contact the cemetery office at 307-235-8317.
