Tree service business booming

‘We’re swamped’ is the common refrain

The last few days have been good days for Naples Street residents Betty and David Dunn.

Like many of their neighbors on the residential street hit hard by last weekend’s storm, the Dunns had trees and limbs down throughout their yard. A big tree split in two and fell on their roof, and the driveway was filled with large tree limbs and branches.

Read about how the industry is doing and see a picture of our very own employee, Matt, on the webpage.

How to Water Your Urban Trees

May 13th, 2010

Watering:

Water your tree thoroughly with approximately 20 gallons, or hand water by running a hose at low pressure for 20 minutes. A tree needs approximately 10 gallons of water per inch of trunk diameter. Boston’s new street trees are typically 2 inches in size. During really hot weather, your tree will need 30 gallons of water each week, applied in 2 separate waterings: 15 gallons one day and 15 gallons a few days later. Please pour the water slowly into the pipe-grate. Cultivating or digging up the top 3 inches of the pit can help with infiltration of water. This helps lessen compaction can keeps the pit looking clean. A 3″ layer of mulch will help the soil to stay moist and will also help prevent weeds

Carousel Returns to Boston Common – Tree News

May 5th, 2010

Following a successful test run last spring, the Boston Common Frog Pond Foundation and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department announced this week that a carousel has returned to the Frog Pond and will stay for an extended run through the end of October.

“For many years the Boston Common Frog Pond Foundation wanted to explore the possibility of having a carousel adjacent to the Frog Pond,” noted Foundation president Tom Kershaw.  “Working closely with Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, we held a trial last spring to see if this type of activity would be received positively by the community.  The answer we got was a resounding ‘yes’ so we are pleased to bring this unique ride back to the Common for the spring, summer and fall.”

City of Boston | Tree Resources

April 25th, 2010

The urban forest plays an important role in Boston’s landscape. The urban forest consists not only of all the treed areas in Boston (streets, yards, urban wilds, cemeteries, and parks) but also shrubs, grasses, herbaceous ground cover, soil, and our waterways. Trees contribute to the well being of our communities by:

  • moderating our local climate (did you know that on warm summer days, the air in urban areas can be 6-8¬∞F hotter than its surrounding areas?)
  • filtering air pollutants, storing storm water and reducing run-off (leaves, branches and bark intercept and store rainfall)
  • enhancing the biodiversity of species by providing wildlife habitat and attracting people to our livable city, and connecting us to larger ecosystems through daily interactions with local green spaces.

Street Trees

The Parks Department is the agency with regulatory and operational responsibilities for public shade trees. The Department’s maintenance program includes pruning, disease control, removals, and storm damage repairs. We plant public shade trees throughout Boston’s 22 neighborhoods. Each street tree signifies the Mayor’s commitment to a greener Boston. The Department plants in the fall and in the spring. Planting locations are primarily chosen based on resident requests. We hope that you will become stewards of Boston’s trees. Please mulch properly, please water your street tree, and report any tree issues to the Park Line at (617) 635.PARK.
