Details Median Trees on Basswood
It has been brought to my attention that there is some talk about the X's on the trees on Basswood. It was not my intention for those trees to be marked prior to me getting information out to the PID residents. The City Forestry Department got ahead of me on that one. I apologize for that. Here's the plan for those medians and why the trees are being removed.
The discussion of these median trees began about a year ago. The City Forestry Department and our PID Arborist determined that the current Pear trees have lived their life expectancy. The City Forestry Department doesn't allow Bradford Pears to be installed along the roadways anymore since they are fragile trees. So, having that information, the PID Landscape company came up with a plan and the PID Board approved it. There was a different plan prior to the one that was approved. Members of PGNA were present at some of these meetings and asked if the PID Board would reconsider and plant larger trees. The PID Board did that and a new plan was developed. The plan was presented to the City Forestry and was approved on June 26, 2019. The idea was to wait until after the holiday season since we do install lights in the trees at those locations. When we bid the new Holiday Decor, we considered that the trees are lit so we will still have lights in the trees in those locations next year. The layout and trees will just be different.
Our new plan will include two 65-gallon Lacey Oak trees, three 65-gallon Chinquapin Oak trees and behind the monuments will be three 45-gallon Arapaho Crape Myrtle trees. New Zoysia Sod will be installed as well.
We have asked the City Forestry Department if they could hold off on removing the pears at the Starwood median, unless they deem them unsafe. The City will be re-designing the turn lanes there and we don't want to plant new material while the area is under construction. We don't want to risk losing our new plant material.
Again, I apologize for the info getting out on Facebook before I could let everyone know. That was certainly not my intention. We strive to make sure we communicate important information as soon as possible.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Guidelines Suspicious Activity Awareness
It can be difficult to determine when to report something suspicious. People most familiar with a given environment are in the best position to determine whether or not something is out of the ordinary. Use common sense and read the guidelines.
