Horizontal Bar

Five London Planetrees [Platanus x acerifolia] and four "October Glory" Red Maples [Acer Rubrum] were added to the the Urban Arboretum of University City on Saturday 28 October 2006.

The 4400 Chestnut Street Neighbor Woods crew planted 9 trees as part of the Tree Vitalize program under the direction of UC Green and coordinated by Betsy Magill of the 4400 Chestnut Street Block Association.

Concrete preparation (cutting and removal) was done by the Orens Brothers, cowners of the Fit Gym at 4415 Chestnut. Chip Buchholtz rented an earth auger from Home Depot to make the tree pit digging easier.
