Tree Planting Begins!
Beginning this week, the city’s contractor (Crimboli Nursery of Canton) will be replacing trees that did not survive the spring planting season. They will also be planting 300 new trees!
Crews will begin planting trees at:
- Grant Park
- E Fourth Street median; just east of Knowles Street
- Barton Parks – both north & south
On Sept. 16, crew members will begin planting in the neighborhoods around downtown. Property owners were provided notice the second week in August of the city’s intent to plant trees and their ability to “opt-out” of the planting program.
It will take approximately 3-5 weeks to plant all the trees. The crews will conduct an initial watering, as needed, and in the spring they will install watering bags on all trees. Crimboli Nursery will fill the slow drip watering bags on a regular basis during the spring & summer of 2019. Residents are also encouraged to fill the watering bags to ensure a high rate of success.
