Five Landmark trees along Prince Ave. will get a boost from New Urban Forestry’s 2009 tree preservation donation. A Landmark Tree in Athens-Clarke County is 50-years-old or greater, has a 36-inch trunk diameter, or has special historic or community significance.
The tree preservation candidates were trees that have been designated as Landmark Trees with Athens-Clarke County and trees that qualified to become Landmark Trees. Most of the five trees have been selected, but the list will not be published until next week.
The selected trees will receive a range of maintenance, preservation, and plant health care tree work. All tree work and materials have been donated by an Athens tree service, New Urban Forestry, L.L.C. They will receive a range of work from fertilization, to soil de-compaction, mulching, pruning and cabling.
A dedication ceremony will be held in mid-July after the tree work has been completed. The dedication will inaugurate the new Landmark Trees and celebrate how we preserve our existing landmarks.
