2015 Tree Trimming to Begin Soon

IMG_3746

Our evaluation team consisting of Pier Maggiani and Patrick Pizzo, have walked the park and marked all the trees that need to be trimmed, or removed because they are dead or diseased. Martin-Fontana Parks Association  (MFPA ) annually shares the cost with  the City’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) by using the City contractor to work on our trees. Soon tree crews will be at work to complete the trimming/removal for this winter. Trees will be evaluated again after nesting season is completed.

Stressed Trees

Pier and Patrick have also identified 43 trees as severely stressed by our last three years of drought. MFPA has contracted to pay Our City Forest (OCF) $15 per tree for mulching services. OCF will clear the area around each tree and heavily mulch the tree in an effort to capture and retain as much water as possible. This will be completed in February.
