I met with the City Forester, Joe Sulak, today at Nelson Park. We settled on a goal of 20 trees to be planted at the shelter area. Of course my goals with BTI are much greater in terms of impact and numbers. Together we can shatter expectations!
Trees need to be watered weekly for the first few years, therefore we must ensure that we can provide for ongoing care once the trees are planted.
In other words, the city is prepared to handle long term care and maintenance of these trees, but if the scope of our effort should grow, advanced planning will be necessary.
