WOW! The printed newsletter hit homes over the last few days and the reaction was incredible! The feedback to the website spiked as people were curious about how a parkway tree could be obtained. The writer contacted the city and spoke with Rick Francis, Assistant CEO, and he shared this insight:
“Terry, if there is room in the parkway and it is already irrigated, the city will come and plant a tree. If it is not irrigated, they won’t because the city is responsible for watering the tree. For further information, community residents should call Marian at 714-754-5123. If your parkway area is OK for planting, she can start a work order.”
Rick also pointed out that different trees are being used to avoid out-of-control root systems that have caused sidewalk upheaval in some areas. The newer trees are less invasive.
Hope that helps. Enjoy your weekend.
