Fall Trees will be Planted Soon

Approximately 400 parkway trees were ordered last month as part of the City’s 50/50 Parkway Tree Program. We will begin planting the trees in early October. In preparation for the planting season, the contractor will begin marking white hash marks on the curbs indicating where the trees will be planted. Most newly planted trees will be fitted with a gator bag to provide a slow drip of water to the roots. In addition, the contractor has begun to remove the gator bags off any trees that were planted in the spring.  Read more »

• New trees are planted with the trunk flare a few inches above grade. The trunk flare is where the trunk expands at the base of the tree. This point should be partially visible after the tree has been planted. If the tree is planted too deep, new roots will have difficulty developing because of a lack of oxygen. Read more »
