However, I have a Vote of NO CONFIDENCE that the new trees will be cared for properly. Just drive down 7th all the way to the pool. The trees were not staked, nor watered, nor guarded from damage from children and animals. They are not trimmed properly to promote strong trunks. The trees that have been broken to the nub have not been replaced and are growing like bushes. What will survive will continue to create problems from lack of proper trimming.
So I took these photos earlier this week.
Some of them do seem to be in rough shape, including several that are severely damaged at the base like the above photo on the right. (And several of them seem to be ash trees. Anyone know for sure?)
So who should be responsible for the long-term care and upkeep of these trees after the first months after planting, the City or the neighbors?
