Fall of 2019 (The Beginning!):
“Nine adults and one youngster volunteered a total of 34 hours spreading the huge piles of mulch the City dropped off at the north end of Lovelace Park. Thank you all who helped out – Barry, Christina, Catie, Christine, Nancy & John, Andy & CJ, Alan (and myself). As we finished yesterday, I saw the beautiful reflection of the tree in the puddle. Just as I started to take the picture, the geese walked to and through it – so enjoy.”
According to Stephen Walker with the City’s Public Works agency, 5 trucks at about 4 yards per truck of mulch were delivered. That’s a lot of mulch!
We hope everyone enjoys the new look. We know the trees will enjoy their healthier environment! Did you know that mulching trees doesn’t just protect tree roots from extreme temperatures all year round, it also conserves moisture, provides nutrients, and improves the soil, all of which make for happier trees.
