Your Pictures: Trees planted in Historic Southwest neighborhood
More than 45 people planted 75 trees in the Historic Southwest neighborhood in Rochester in September. RNeighbors teamed up with the city of Rochester, Herring Ecologistics and Rochester Public Utilities in winning a grant and sponsoring the event.
The neighborhood applied for the Neighborhood Tree Grant, stating that they have many ash trees in their neighborhood that inevitably will be taken down by the Emerald Ash Borer. Trees planted included ginkgo, amur corktree, KCT, disease-resistant elm, ornamental pear, and redbud.
The purpose of the RNeighborWoods Tree grant is to encourage the planting of trees on neighborhood boulevards. The Neighborhood Tree Grant is offered in the spring and the fall.
