Dead Trees Slated to Be Removed

August 13, 2014

On August 13 and 14, the Boston Parks Department will be removing a dozen dead trees from Beacon Hill, on Charles, Chestnut, Irving, Mt. Vernon, Myrtle, and West Cedar Streets. The removals automatically generate a planting request, and a new tree will planted at a future date if the location is not too close to a lamppost, fire hydrant, utilities line, or corner.
