HERITAGE TREE UPDATE
In January, the City relocated a 53” diameter live oak tree on the site of our future Municipal Complex. The tree was moved to the southeast corner of the property to make room for the new buildings. Since then, many of you have asked about the heritage tree’s condition. Environmental Design, Inc. and The Davey Tree Expert Co. are overseeing the general health of the live oak.
Nov. 6, 2017 Heritage Tree Report (Environment Design, Inc. and The Davey Tree Expert Co.)
The relocated live oak continues to show positive signs of health with new growth evident throughout much of the canopy. Canopy color has changed to more of an olive color which could be due to many factors such as time of year, weather patterns, dust accumulation from construction activities, etc. However, the new growth is a positive sign and the health of the tree overall is not of concern now. The foliage will continue be monitored to note any significant changes that may cause concern for tree health.
Soil moisture was good throughout October and the system has functioned properly. The same close monitoring of soil moisture will continue as the season shifts and irrigations adjustments will be made accordingly.
