Help Our Small Boulevard Trees Beat the Heat

Wednesday, July 19 2017 1:22 PM  •   Categorized In Public Works
Our boulevard trees need your help. We’re in a dry spell and our younger trees are under stress. City crews are watering now but cannot reach all of the trees in a timely manner. Wet conditions over the past two summers have made small trees even more susceptible to the stress of a dry period like the one we are currently experiencing.

Boulevard trees lend tremendous beauty, shade, and ambiance to our city streets, and we thank you for helping them survive this dry spell.
