Volunteers helped to eliminate the threat of invasive tree species at the Margaret Annis Boys Centennial Arboretum.

The arboretum, or what is referred to as a tree museum, is at the south end of Bickham-Rudkin Park, on 33rd Street between Boulevard and Bryant Avenue.

The trail's central section consists of native grasses that are under threat from the spread of unwanted trees.

The work was needed to maintain this natural area and preserve its biodiversity, wildlife, ecosystem and visual interest, city urban forestry officials said.
