UGA Baseball Stadium Perimeter Improvements Project

ATHENS --- Construction has begun on the University of Georgia baseball stadium perimeter improvements project at Foley Field. The project was approved by the UGA Athletic Association Board of Directors at its regular spring, 2012, meeting.

The UGA Athletic Association project includes retaining wall construction beyond right field in the area known as Kudzu Hill to stabilize erosion on the existing bank and to form a new plaza with portable bleachers.

Also included in this project is the removal of the existing trees that form a visual screen outside the left field fence. Planted over 25 years ago, the Leland Cypress have lost many of their lower limbs making the trees more susceptible to the diseases that are rapidly spreading amongst the species. The trees are nearing their typical lifespan.

To help insure a consistent vegetative screen, the existing trees will be replaced with Green Giant Arborvitae. This species has proven to be less susceptible to disease over time. After removal, the existing trees will be recycled and ultimately returned to the University of Georgia campus landscape as composted mulch.

The project is scheduled to be completed in early February before the 2013 baseball season begins.
