Landscape Update: October 12, 2010

Tree Removals Near Parsons House

A strip of land near Parsons House contains many tall damaged conifers that need to be cut down. Since most of the trees have lost their lower limbs from shading and age, they serve little function in the landscape and additionally they are now a hazard. This past summer one of these trees broke apart, sending a limb through the roof of a bedroom in one of the Friedman apartments. Once the area is cleared, we will evaluate landscape to plan for replacement plantings that are more in scale with the building heights.
