Enlarge Tree Pits Program
In our discussions with Urban Arborists, we discovered that for any new tree installation, the Parks Department requires that the tree pit be 4'x8' (to see more about Tree Care from the Parks Department, click here). The longevity of the tree is substantially increased by the increased water absorption and room for roots. Our existing trees would also benefit greatly from the increased room. Thus we are recommending that all our tree pits be enlarged at this time. In addition to aiding the health of our existing trees, the uniformity of the pits- with new matching tree guards-substantially enhances the beauty of our block and the value of our homes.
