Part of New Plymouth's Huatoki Walkway was closed yesterday to allow trees to be removed.
Further work means another section will also be closed today.
New Plymouth District Council contractors yesterday used a crane to remove a magnolia tree at the top of Brougham St. The tree split last weekend.
Two car parks on Brougham St were out of action while the work was carried out.
Today the walkway between Harris St and the prison quarry will be closed so logs can be removed from Huatoki Stream.
"There will be a digger and trucks in the area which will make it too dangerous to keep that section open to the public during the work," district arborist Conrad Pattison said.
The logs are gum trees which had fallen into the stream. They needed to be removed to avoid flooding issues in the area, Mr Pattison said.
During today's closure members of the public are encouraged to bypass that section by using an alternative route from Downe Stover Marsland Hill to Brougham St. Or, people could use the access track adjacent to the prison quarry from Huatoki Walkway to Carrington St.
