RED BANK - Dead trees have forced the closure of a Red Bank park.

Residents tell News 12 New Jersey that they've noticed dead trees at Bellhaven Park on Locust Avenue in Red Bank for years. Recently though, residents have reported seeing large limbs falling onto the walkway in the wetlands recreational area. Residents say the falling limbs are especially dangerous in windy conditions.

The borough put up yellow "dangerous trees" signs and caution tape to block visitors from entering the area.

Gary Watson, the director of public works for the borough, says the trees should be removed soon. According to Watson, the borough is waiting on price quotes from tree removal experts.

Bellhaven Park is the only park on the west side of Red Bank.
