With the dedicated efforts of many (and many calls and emails to the City) we have gotten the City to add mulch to the bases of the new trees. The mulch will help the trees retain water and will protect them from dogs and nasty whippersnippers.
All of the trees should now have a “gator bag” around them. There is a slit at the top on one side of the bag. If anyone wishes, please feel free to add water to any of the bags. The bags slowly release the water for the tree.
We are hoping that the City will also do some improvements to the paving in the paths. You can now see that there are some white lines which seem to denote areas of concern.
