House Street Tree Clearing Complete

Following approval late last year of our Work Plan to install engineered caps at our House Street property, we began clearing trees in February and completed the process last week, ahead of schedule.

The trees have been stockpiled on-site and will remain there (along with the stumps in the ground) until cap construction this Fall, at which time they will be chipped and placed under the constructed caps.  In addition, soil erosion controls have been installed.

The next step in the process is to receive contractor bids, which are due on May 1, 2023.  Then, we anticipate awarding the contract by July 30, 2023, with a construction start date no later than October 28, 2023.  A detailed schedule will be determined as part of the bidding process, but the overall project is still expected to take at least three years to complete.

As a reminder, we performed routine on-site air monitoring during the tree clearing in accordance with the Air Monitoring Plan we shared with EGLE.  Results of this monitoring have consistently been below threshold limits, with no yellow or red level alerts.  This includes the most recent data for April 16-19, 2023.

You can view all air monitoring data to-date here, along with a guide showing how to interpret the results, and a map showing the locations of the air monitoring stations on the property.

We will continue keeping the community informed about this work, through regular updates on this blog,, and through information posted at kiosks and in other locations accessible to the public. As always, residents with questions or feedback are encouraged to contact Wolverine Worldwide directly at or (616) 866-5627.
