Martin-Fontana Parks Association sponsors Tree Trimming

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 trim our trees.  On Tuesday the 24th, ten trees were trimmed to provide a much larger safety margin to PG&E high voltage lines.  Thus increasing the odds their removal will not be required by PG&E.  Besides the trimming, two dead or dying trees were removed.


Turf Reduction has started

It looks like the turf removal is going on in steps. Irrigation is the first thing being dealt with. The irrigation system will be hard-piped with fixed water-heads that will spray the water horizontally in a circular motion at strategical plant locations. This is not a drip system.  They are also digging a deeper channel around the periphery of the areas so that the chips will tend to stay where they are placed.
