City Council Report: Kate is going to suggest to the Council that the arborvitae at the entrances to Chelsea and Highfield be replaced with canopy trees.
She also reminded the Board of Glow on the Green, November 30 .
Arborist’s Report: Mike introduced a landscape plan for Foeburn and Westport Road after he met with L G & E Arboist Tammy Eifert at the site. There would be Yellow Zelkovas, clumps of red cedars (both which could grow in the poor soil there), yellow red buds, red cedars, and a male gingho. All of these plants would be on the right of way. Martha made the motion to go forward with it, starting this fall.
Cheri seconded it. The motion passed unanimously.
Kate will give a short summary of this to the Council.
Tree Lottery proposal: It was suggested that the lottery allow the winning homeowner be allowed to plant the tree anywhere on the property. Kate will report this to the Council.
