Naturalization in Twin Brooks - Update
We had a very successful 2-day planting event last Thursday and Friday (May 26, 27, 2016) mornings on the east-side boulevards at the north end of 119th Street. The weather cooperated, allowing 55 grade 5, and 75 grad 6, students to plant a total of 350 small trees and shrubs. With a good mix of rain and sun this growing season, these plants should become well established, concluding our two years of intended planting for this area between the established willows at the south end and Twin Brooks Way at the north end.
The City's Transportation Drainage group has partnered with the Root for Trees Program to construct a demonstration Rain Garden at the north end of this same section of boulevard, plus construction of demonstration Bioswales at the south end. This initiative should be complementary to our student plantings. Keep an eye out, as this work should be proceeding over the next few weeks in June.
Other portions of the 119th Street boulevards were planted last year through planting events organized directly by the Root for Trees Program and involving volunteers from outside of our community. We are monitoring these sites as well and will likely want to see some replacement and in-fill planting efforts in these sections over the next year or two to ensure they are well established.
