The Beacon Hill Civic Association announced several weeks ago it is starting a fund for new tree guards on Charles Street . The goal is $90,000. This drive coincides with its 90th anniversary.
Bob Owens and Alyson Lindsey are heading up the committee charged with raising the funds.
It is the belief of the leadership of the BHCA that the neighborhood will benefit from these funds as they are largely intended for having uniform trees and tree guards from Beacon Street to Charles Street.
The total will be 53 trees on Charles Street alone and other trees needing replacement will be added to this number.
