Tree Planting

Tree Planting in Field Club

Neighbors in Field Club planted 13 trees in front of their houses thanks to a grant from the Midtown Neighborhood Association.  The Field Club Homeowners League is a member of MNA, which allows our residents to participate in re-tree grants.  On Saturday, Nov 1, neighbors received instruction on proper planting and maintenance of trees from John Ranson, MNA treasurer and co-chair of the tr-tree committee.  Our neighbors requested and received 13 trees of four different varieties to plant in the public property in front of their houses.  John got help from neighbors and children to get a demonstration tree planted!

Remember, you dues paid to the Field Club Homeowners Leagues allow us to pay the dues to belong to MNA.  Our participation in MNA allows us to get trees in the spring and fall.  Thanks to all neighbors who have paid their dues!

If you did not get a tree this fall, but would like to get one in the future, please email board member Peggy Pavlik at pavlikmr9@gmail.com.

TREES, TREES, TREES

Trees, Trees Trees!

Midtown Neighborhood Alliance, which FCHL is a member of, has received a grant to plant trees in member neighborhoods.  Any homeowner can request a tree from this grant. Trees must be planted in “public access,” which generally means between the sidewalk and the street.  However, on some properties, the public access extends up to 10 feet or more into the front yard (or side yard for corner properties).

 

Homeowners will have some choice on tree variety, however, native, drought and disease resistant varieties are encouraged.  There is some restriction based on trees available from local nurseries as well. This is for planting this fall. The homeowner’s obligation is to water and maintain the tree.

 

If you would like a tree for your property, please contact Peggy Pavlik at 402-657-0851 or pavlikmr9@gmail.com.  Once the address is known, we can look up the public access area of the property.  For some of the plantings, holes will be dug for the homeowner. MNA encourages as much homeowner and neighborhood association participation as possible since the free labor can be counted as “in kind” matching dollars for the grants.

 

Please look over your property and think about planting a new tree.  Do this especially if the city has cut down an ash tree on your property.
