First an update, while the weather in May and June was not particularly nice for us humans, it was great for newly planted trees. As such I checked a few streets up in the NW and it appears that better than 95% of the trees are doing well. This is good news after much poorer numbers last year in the Country Club Manor area, in part due to vandals.
I was sent an analysis by 3 students (Peggy Buehler, Neomi Runyon, Holly Berg) who looked at how much money we saved by doing a community planting. In short, this is a great way to plant trees and improve neighborhoods. I fully expect they got an “A.”
