Time to claim a tree guard for your favorite tree!
One of the initiatives funded by the 2019 Participatory budget will provide tree guards for newly planted trees. If there are some in your neck of the hood, on the streets and especially on the avenues where the conditions are harsher for the newly planted trees, send the request and the tree location to Council member Johnson’s office.
First come first served.
My tree is on ninth avenue, west side, between 43 and 44 streets. It is a safety hazard and tree guards will help correct that. Roots are exposed and need covering: a planter box needs to be installed as well to hold the soil of the exposed roots.
send it to Matt Green.
