The new trees planted by volunteers last spring have broken dormancy. In spite of a harsh early freeze last fall that caused some damage, all the new trees are growing. Way to go, Volunteers!
The first winter after transplant is critical for new tree survival. The top-notch planting care given by the planting teams, and follow-up maintenance by Public Works, Parks and others, helped achieve this welcome result.
