There were a number of concerns brought out in regards to some of the trees tentatively scheduled for removal. There was also much concern for the Norway Maples at the west entrance being in danger of damage or destruction by the construction crews. During the three years of reconstruction, there is question as to how the trees are going to be watered and cared for properly.

The pictures showed the original layout of the grounds and walkways used as a basis for the reconstruction plans.

Bob Burke, Jennifer Harrington, and anyone else interested, will review the 40% plans to study the proposed design and give a short presentation to the Board at the next meeting.

There is still great concern about finding people to do the tree pruning properly. There needs to be some way to qualify prospective contractors to insure a proper job.
